Part 3 - Research Proposal Dissertation

Part 3 - Research proposal dissertation

For the final part of the MRes (May-September), students work with an individual supervisor, and a broader team of experts drawn from the CDT partners, to develop a detailed proposal for the PhD phase. During this phase, the students also benefit from the MRes Summer Seminar Series: a set of talks by invited speakers focussing on key issues in industry (examples include: Designing for Service (Rolls-Royce) and Product-Focussed Integrated Design (Dyson).

PhD Phase 

The MRes provides a springboard to the PhD phase of the CDT. Students register for a PhD at one of the three partner universities. Each university provides an internationally recognised environment for turbomachinery research but CDT students also benefit from the network of experts, and the portfolio of skills, that they have built up during the MRes phase. In addition, the full cohort is regularly reunited for CDT seminars and workshop events.
