Our Integrated PhD provides research training, supervision and collaboration to international standards. Your research project will be in one of the areas addressed by our research groups.
The research project comprises an original piece of work combining both experiment and theory. Your thesis should explore, in detail, some element of engineering or science as applied in the marine environment. Where appropriate, you will be encouraged to take advantage of our strong links with the marine industry to carry out your research project in an industrial context. Recent partnerships and collaborations include International Paint, Lloyds Register and BAE Systems.
Your research project is normally in one of the areas addressed by our research groups:
Modelling, Evidence and Policy
Marine Resources and Renewable Energy (MRRE)
Marine Hydrodynamics and Structures (MHS)
Sustainable Shipping and Marine Engineering (SSME)
Our course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) on behalf of the Engineering Council. This means that you are automatically recognised as satisfying the educational requirements leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
