We're home to award-winning and internationally recognised research centres spanning energy, aerospace, fluids, structures and materials. Our work involves both the creation of new knowledge and understanding, and translating that new knowledge into the technologies of tomorrow.
The department’s research, teaching and industrial support work is underpinned by state-of-the-art laboratories and local-access to a 3500-node region supercomputer.
You can study an MPhil over the course of one year or a PhD over three.
You can study either degree in any of our four research groups:
Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD) programme
As part of your PhD degree, you'll be enrolled on the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Professional Development (PG Cert RPD).
This certificate is designed to support you with your research and rewards you for things you'll do as a research student here.
It'll help you improve skills which are important to professional development and employability:
- the knowledge and intellectual abilities to conduct your research
- the personal qualities to succeed in your research and chosen career
- the standards, requirements and conduct of a professional researcher in your discipline
- working with others and communicating the impact of your research to a wide range of audiences
All you have to do is plan these activities alongside your doctorate, documenting and reflecting your journey to success along the way.

Computational Analysis of Polymeric Turbulent Boundary Layers
The aim of this project is to apply a mesoscopic approach to polymeric turbulent boundary layer flows and make some first, yet decisive, steps in understanding the physics and algorithmics of fully-coupled polymeric boundary layer turbulence.
Computational Analysis of Superfluid Turbulent Boundary Layers
The purpose of this project is to extend previous homogeneous, isotropic superfluid turbulence theoretical studies to superfluid boundary layer flows towards understanding the physics and algorithmics of superfluid boundary layer turbulence.
High fidelity Direct Numerical Simulation of alternative fuel flames
The aim of this project is to conduct high fidelity parametric Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) studies of the turbulent combustion of syngas fuel mixtures with air.
