Postgraduate Research and Other Research

The School offers research degrees leading to a Master of Engineering Science (2 years) or a PhD (3.5 years). Research projects from industry that involve acadmic staff and one or more postgraduate students are welcome.

Strategic Partnerships with Industry

There is one principal way in which your organisation and the University may collaborate to achieve a mutually beneficial outcome. The School of Mechanical Engineering provides project supervision, use of all laboratory facilities and office accomodation for the student as well as considerable technical support and use of computing facilities. In many cases, industry partners have benefited from employing the postgraduate students after they complete their higher degrees.

Projects generally involve research and development have a moderate to high technical risk and are unlikely to be done by your organisation in the normal course of events. It may include solution of a troublesome problem or development of a new product or process.
