Systems Engineering

main content

The Systems Engineering Doctorate Centre offers a four-year programme (EngD) intended for the UK's leading research engineers who want a managerial career in industry.

Students (Research Engineers) can register with any Research University in the consortium, and will undertake core training at Loughborough University and optionally the University of Bath in year 2.

The Research Engineers will spend around three-quarters of their time working directly with their sponsoring company, on research projects designed and supervised jointly by academics and the sponsoring company. The other quarter of the four-year period will be spent undertaking masters-level training in systems engineering skills, in the development of management capabilities, and specialist technical subjects directly relevant to each REs research.

The Centre is located at Loughborough University, but is a consortium involving four other institutions, the University of Bath, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Leicester and the University of Strathclyde.
