PhD & EngD opportunities

As well as a wide range of PhD opportunities you can also choose to study an EngD with us. EngD degree programmes combine pioneering research and advanced skills training. This allows you to work on cutting edge engineering or technology research, and development work relating to real industrial problems and needs.

An EngD programme is different from a PhD programme as it is studied over four years rather than three and there’s greater industry involvement throughout.

We’re engaged in a range of Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), giving you a varied range of choices when considering studying an EngD with us.

Flexible learning to suit your needs

Some courses can be studied part-time or by distance learning

We feel that everyone should be given the opportunity to learn, and so we offer a varied choice of flexible learning options. 

Some postgraduate courses can be studied on a part-time basis, an option that allows you to gain the same degree in a different way.

Distance learning options are also available for some courses. Distance learning courses are hosted online, but have the advantage of real tutors giving you support through forums and live webinars. Distance learning allows you to study at your own pace, at times and places that are convenient for you.

A number of networking events, presentation days and programme monitoring classes are provided to give you all the support you need during your time studying with us.

You’ll also be assigned your own personal supervisor for the duration of your studies. We want to ensure that you have the best possible experience studying with us, and to help prepare you for your time following Strathclyde.
