Mechanical Engineering PhD
About the course
Research students are welcomed to Brunel as valued members of our thriving, research-intensive community. A research degree provides the opportunity to investigate a topic in depth, and contribute new knowledge to your discipline.
A PhD involves demonstrating through original research or other advanced scholarship the creation and interpretation of new knowledge, a systematic acquisition and understanding of a substantial body of knowledge at the forefront of an academic discipline or professional practice, the ability to conceptualise, design and implement a project for the general of new knowledge, applications or understanding at the forefront of the discipline. Both full-time (3 years) and part-time (6 years) study routes are available.
MPhil degree option
An MPhil involves the exploration of a research topic and is typically studied over a shorter period of 1 year for a full-time student and 2 years for a part-time student. MPhil students are required to demonstrate a systematic understanding of knowledge and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights informed by the forefront of their discipline, field of study or professional practice.
Mechanical engineering covers the design and development of every kind of machines - from supersonic fighter jets and super cars to bicycles to toasters. And they contribute to the design of other products as well – mobile phones, computers and even windows and doors. Many mechanical engineers specialize in areas such as aerospace, automotive/transportation, manufacturing, and air conditioning. Others cross over into other disciplines, working on everything from artificial organs to the expanding field of healthcare. And some use their mechanical engineering degree as preparation for the practice of finance and law.
Our lab facilities are extensive, modern and well-equipped, including the dedicated aerospace/aviation laboratory, flight simulator, professionally designed Brunel motorsport workshop, modern material/structure testing laboratory, and state-of-art IC engine laboratories.
