Close Relationships with Industry
As the Faculty covers all the key disciplines of Engineering, the range and scope of available careers are vast. The University’s motto of ‘useful learning’ is typified by our industrially-relevant taught programmes and our award-winning research. Our close connections with industry ensure that our degrees remain relevant to employers and that students have the opportunity to work on projects assigned by companies that address real industrial challenges. Equipped with industrially-relevant skills, our graduates are in demand world-wide from employers. Companies specifically target Strathclyde so that many of our students have found employment with global, blue-chip companies. If you are serious about a career in engineering, then this is the place to be.
Support Throughout Your Studies
You’ll enjoy a full programme of support and training from the Faculty. Your studies will begin with a full induction programme to welcome you to Strathclyde and your new Department. 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.
Flexible Learning Options
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.
We offer a wide range of scholarships to our postgraduate students. Scholarships can help you in a number of ways, such as payment towards fees, materials, and to provide monthly living allowances.
There are many funding opportunities available through individual departments or tied to specific programmes and made available from industry sponsors or partner and research councils.
