PhD Studentships

We are always looking for bright PhD students to join us. Many of our research groups have their own PhD studentships and links to their Jobs & Studentship pages are listed on the right. The research group pages are a great resource to learn more about our division, our members, research interests, and the kinds of projects being carried out. Although it is not necessary before applying, if you have doubts about whether your background is suitable for a particular PhD programme or if you have questions about a specific research group, you are welcome to contact one of the faculty members directly.

General information about applying, including the application forms and deadlines for graduate study, is available on the Postgraduate Admissions website. 

Further information is provided on the Department of Engineering's own Postgraduate Studies pages.
