Students are offered training and taught modules in a wide range of technical subjects. Transferable skills courses, covering topics such as presentation and communication skills, technical writing, commercialisation and entrepreneurship are also provided.
A structured PhD programme, PhD Engineering Science, was introduced in October 2011. In addition to research leading to a thesis, a structured PhD provides technical and scientific training related to a candidate’s research topic but also aims to provide a richer background by providing transferable (e.g. project management and commercialisation) and generic (e.g.
presentation and technical writing) skills.
