About

The Mechanical Engineering (by Research and Thesis) programme from University of Kent will allow you to undertake cutting-edge projects in advanced fields of Mechanical Engineering.

Overview

The School has state-of-the-art facilities and experimental equipment to support students’ research such as 3-D printer, wind tunnel, dynamic testing machines, mechatronic units and non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment. The School provides research students the opportunity to participate in regular research seminars and workshops. We also offer research students the possibility of attending international conferences organised by Mechanical Engineering societies to present their work.

Students taking the Mechanical Engineering (by Research and Thesis) programme from University of Kent do not undertake credit-bearing taught modules and there are no written examinations. Instead, you will be assigned a supervisor who is a leading expert in their field.  You are expected to attend a bi-weekly supervision lasting up to 1 hour via online tools such as Skype or Google Hangout for those choosing to undertake the MSc by Research through the online option. In these meetings, you will present your progress to your supervisor.  Tasks and deadlines will be set accordingly to your schedule.
