As an Engineering PhD student at the University of Brighton you will be joining the prestigious Advanced Engineering Centre (AEC). The centre has its own dedicated building and enjoys an international reputation for producing innovative, future-facing research.
Here, we investigate and optimise complex thermofluid processes and develop laser-based measurement techniques, fundamental modelling and computational simulation and conduct engineering research across a range of areas including aeronautical, aerospace, electrical and manufacturing.
Together with our numerous industrial partners, we continually invest in facilities, equipment and our researchers to help us build new capabilities, refine our modelling and simulation methods and exploit fully our joint expertise.
We welcome students to work with us for their Engineering PhD and offer dedicated supervision together with hands-on opportunities to develop research that changes the future including
Our research team collaborates with more than 40 academic institutions and 30 commercial companies, offering many opportunities for our PhD students to develop collaborations and build their international network.
Many of our graduates with a PhD in Engineering from the University of Brighton stay within academic research, predominantly by securing post-doctoral research positions or lecturing roles, both within UK and international institutes. Some of our graduates also work in Research & Development (R&D) departments for engineering companies.
