About Mechanical Engineering (New Route PhD) at Brunel University London

OverviewMechanical Engineering research within the School of Engineering and Design, has an excellent track record and an international reputation. Staff generate numerous publications, conference presentations and patents and have links with a wide range of types of institution both within and outside the UK. The School therefore benefits from research collaboration with numerous outside organisations, including teaching hospitals, several governmental laboratories (including the National Physical Laboratory, Transport Research Laboratory and the Building Research Establishment), and universities as far afield as Egypt, Turkey, China, Japan, Brazil, Poland and Denmark. Close links are also maintained with numerous commercial concerns, in particular the Ford Motor Company, SKF and British Petroleum, as well as the Teaching Companies with which the School works.Excellent facilitiesThe School of Engineering and Design has extensive and well-equipped laboratories, particular areas of strength being in fluid mechanics, engine testing, vibrations, environmental engineering, and structural testing. Its computing facilities are extremely varied and are readily available to all students. The University is fully networked with both Sun workstations and PCs. The School is connected to this network but also has its own computer facilities. Advanced software is available for finite and boundary element modelling of structures, finite volume modelling of flows, and for the simulation of varied control systems, flow machines, combustion engines, suspensions, and other systems of interest to the research groups.New Route PhDThis programme aims to educate graduates not only to the high academic standards expected from PhD research but also in generic personal, business and communication skills. Because it extends the usual PhD from three to four years, it develops an integrated range of skills and knowledge that both broaden and deepen the individual's subject expertise beyond the bounds of the usual research degree. Further information about how the programme works, its structure, and how to apply, are available here. Discipline-Specific ModulesIn addition to the programme of modules provided by all New Route PhD Programmes, you will have the opportunity to take a number of modules from our various postgraduate courses. These include: Advanced CAD and Numerical Modelling Advanced Solid Body Mechanics Advanced Thermofluids Advanced Vehicle Dynamics, IC Engines and Materials Aerodynamics, Mechanics and Propulsion Systems Computer Aided Engineering Methods Contextual Design Design and Analysis of Aircraft and Spaceship Systems Enterprise and Innovation Graphics Managing Project Innovation Racing Team Management and Vehicle Testing Research Planning, Methodology and Innovation Strategic Management and Enterprise Topical Issues in Aerospace Industry Usual entry requirementsA good degree in a relevant subject and/or appropriate professional qualification and experience.
