Mechanical Engineering

A Doctor of Philosophy degree, short Ph.D is an advanced academic degree earned in various fields, signifying major interests and accomplishments in research.

A PhD in Mechanical Engineering helps you understand the concepts in engineering better hence enabling you to give solutions to complex mechanical problems. Through this training, you can provide advisory services to mechanical engineering companies especially in different mechanical problems.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom and Britain, is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe.The two most famous (and oldest) universities are Oxford and Cambridge (often referred to as Oxbridge by many Britons) England also has several other world-class institutions, including several in London (notably Imperial College, the London School of Economics, University College London and King's College London, all are part of London University)

England is the largest of the four "home nations" that make up the United Kingdom. It is also the most populous of the four with almost 52 million inhabitants (roughly 84% of the total population of the UK).

PhD Programs in Mechanical Engineering in England in United Kingdom. PhD projects can cover many different fields within this discipline, for example thermodynamics/fluid mechanics, structural dynamics, mechanics and design. This PhD is based within the Faculty of Engineering. This provides the opportunity to undertake a PhD in a wide range of research areas and work across traditional research boundaries being part of interdisciplinary teams. The research work within the faculty spans a range of applications including medicine, aerospace and automotive engineering, energy and the construction industry, sustainable design and development and it includes work from the most fundamental studies up to near-commercial investigations. This course requires a 2:1 or international equivalent and/or a masters at merit level or above in a relevant subject, and an IELTS level 6.0 (5.5 in each element). It is usually completed over a period of around three years. Facilities Facilities including a range of materials-testing and characterisation techniques, including an electronic microscope suite, networked computers to support computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided engineering (CAE) using industry-standard software packages; solid mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, vibration, control, mechatronics; a full range of wind tunnels including a climatic tunnel’ aero-engine test rigs and associated equipment and processes; fully automated 3D and 2D laser Doppler Anemometers and particle image velocimeters; a water jet cutting machine; high precision scales; and a welding system. Research support Support for Postgraduate Research students is coordinated through the Faculty Research Office. Each PhD student will have a main academic supervisor and at... [-]

Engineering, Product Design and Textiles specialisms - PhD The doctor of philosophy (PhD) degree is aimed at students with a masters degree in a relevant field, in addition to a good honours degree (or significant work experience and professional qualifications), who wish to undertake a research-based doctorate. On the PhD programme you are expected to demonstrate the creation and interpretation of new knowledge through original research, or other advanced scholarship of a quality to satisfy peer review, which extends the forefront of the discipline and merits publication. You will also be expected to acquire an understanding of a substantial body of knowledge in your particular subject area in the field of engineering or design, as well as a general ability to conceptualise, design and implement a project for the generation of new knowledge. You will also gain a detailed understanding of applicable techniques for research and advanced academic enquiry in the engineering or design subject area. If you wish to develop research and analytical skills and conduct an original piece of research this course is appropriate for you. Your research may be applied research or action research, and may be based on your work in industry if you choose to study part-time. Careers & professional development Recent graduates from the PhD programme are following careers in academia and industry. On graduation you will become a member of the University's alumni association. You will be a lifelong member of the University's community, able to access careers information, the library, professional periodicals... [-]
