Potential research topics

  • ​The PG Dip in Engineering programme does not contain a research assignment or thesis.
  • The MEng Structured requires students to complete a research assignment (please see the Research Assignment page).
  • MEng Research (Mechanical and Mechatronic) and Doctoral students have to complete a research thesis as part of their study. A list of typical research thesis topics are given below. These are not the only available topics - we only state a few to give prospective students an idea of the different fields of research that are covered in our Department.
  • At a Master's and Doctoral level, funding is closely related to specific thesis topics. With each topic's description we give an indication of the availability of funding for that topic (certain conditions apply).
  • Prospective students who have already been accepted by the Department for Postgraduate studies are welcome to contact the relevant lecturers for more information on their topics.
  • Please ​see MM_PostGrad_TopicList to download a list of potential research topics for MEng and PhD programmes.
