As the only University anywhere in the world that has a sustained programme of building complete satellites, performing mission planning and working with international launch we are uniquely placed to provide a range of programmes across all levels.
Postgraduate research (PhD) course
The PhD is a widely respected and highly regarded qualification which certifies that the holder is a highly competent, professional, self-motivated achiever.
Adaptive communication modelling using software defined radio
Funding information:The funding is available for 3 years for a total amount of £18,491 p.a. for home and EU applicants. This is made up of a bursary (£14,296) and fees (£4,195) per annum, pro rata and will be increased every year to cover the cost of both fees and bursary up to a total of three years.
Spacecraft structural dynamics and testing
Funding information:The researcher will be enrolled as a PhD student and we are offering tuition fees plus a bursary fully funded (standard rate £14,726 per annum - exempt of income tax- but higher rates are possible, depending on the candidate qualifications and experience) for 3.5 years.
Much of the research we conduct span these boundaries and include participants from more than one group. Alternative projects are very often formulated through discussions between prospective students and individual staff members, so if there is an area that interests you but you are unable to find the specific project listed, please please contact a relevant member of staff to discuss further.
