Warwick’s School of Engineering is one of the leading engineering schools in the UK. We offer a range of specialist taught Master’s courses and research degrees. The School has a strong research profile placing it in the top ten General Engineering departments in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. The School has three Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering among its staff and more than 20 members at Fellow level in the Engineering professional bodies.
The School has research strengths in Energy, Systems Engineering, Power Electronics, Information and Communication Technologies, Biomedical Engineering, Fluid Dynamics and Civil Engineering. We have worldwide collaborative links with academic partners such as MIT, Boston University, Max Planck Institute, ETH Zurich, Harbin Institute of Technology, Monash University and Tianjin University. Industrial links include companies such as Converteam, the UK’s largest renewable energy technology company, Arup, Thales and Morgan Est.
We have recently invested some £2.5 million in a refurbishment of the Engineering building, providing new teaching and research facilities, including purpose-built chemical processing and biomedical engineering laboratories in addition to modern learning spaces. We have also invested in state-of-the art equipment to enhance our strong research record in power electronics and sustainable heating and cooling technology.
- Applications now being accepted for entry - Monday 29th September 2014
The objectives of our MSc variants are: to provide training in advanced research methods; to bring you to a high level of knowledge and understanding in topics central to engineering; to enable you to undertake research; to allow you freedom to choose from a substantial range of topics in order to match your individual background and career interests; to provide the experience of a substantial piece of original research or innovative design. The courses are particularly suitable if you intend to progress either to industrial research and development, or to a PhD course.
- Applications are accepted all year round.
Postgraduate students are accepted to study for an MSc by research (1 to 2 years) or a PhD (3-4 years). Part-time registration is also possible, requiring, of course, a longer period of study. New research topics are regularly adopted and the coverage of most branches of engineering within a single large School makes it easy to pursue inter-disciplinary research at Warwick. Research degree courses do not contain any interim examinations, but students are expected to attend lecture modules on appropriate topics. Students are required to submit annual progress reports. Regular meetings are held with a progress panel, established for each student to monitor progress and give advice. Research students are encouraged to give seminars, publish their findings and to undertake (paid) laboratory demonstrating work.
