Department of Engineering

Postgraduate Study

'When I applied to study at Durham University, I was certainly not expecting so many favourable aspects that have made my time here very enjoyable. The lectures are of very high quality, and given by experts in each subject. Assignments are at times demanding but also very rewarding, since I have been able to use new software and solve real-life problems in the field of renewable energy generation and integration.'

Sebastian Sanchez Perez-Moreno, Graduate


The Postgraduate Programmes in the Department of Engineering are divided into the Taught Master of Science Degree Programmes, which involve a substantial portion of classroom-based learning, and the Research Programmes, including both the Doctor of Philosophy and the Master of Science by Research, which involve individualised training and are focused on an extensive research project/thesis.

The Department of Engineering has a rich research background, which can be a huge advantage to any prospective postgraduate student in our fields of expertise. We pride ourselves on not only our world leading research, but also our links to significant industry partners. It is a very challenging and exciting time to become an Engineer and Durham University provides the perfect environment to begin this journey.
