The University of Southampton is a member of the prestigious Russell Group, and in the Research Excellence Framework (2014) Southampton was ranked the most powerful University for General Engineering research in the UK.

The School of Engineering is one of the largest and most diverse in the UK. In collaboration with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and our industrial partners are offering a range of fully-funded doctoral studentships.

Joining the School of Engineering as a PhD student means working on awe-inspiring research projects, learning from world class academics and developing cutting edge science and technology.

If you have an upper second class or first class degree in Engineering, Physical Sciences or Mathematics you are eligible for our PhD programme. Within the four years of the programme you will become an expert in your field by carrying out original research, publishing papers and presenting your results to the academic community. But it’s not just about gaining your PhD, we want you to invest in your research career. Our programme ensures you benefit from both technical and personal training as well as professional development through placements in industry, mentoring, conference attendance. Our scope extends well beyond the boundaries of the University with a comprehensive outreach and engagement programme so your research can reach the wider community.

Change the world for the better. As a PhD student you will be the expert but you will not be working alone. Each student has a team of academic supervisors who are on hand to guide the research and provide advice and support. Many of our PhD projects have strong links with industry ensuring your research is current and relevant with a real world impact. Furthermore you will join a thriving postgraduate community at the University.
