University of Greenwich

Course Introduction

The programme requires each student to normally 1st enrol on the MPhil degree. After completing the 1st year of the MPhil, the student's progress is reviewed, and, if considered satisfactory, the student is permitted to transfer to the PhD for a further 2 to 3 years of research. A student who does not wish to continue at this point may write up and submit the work to be considered for an MPhil degree. MPhil/PhD students are usually provided with 2 supervisors, who guide them through the research. The supervisors are usually research staff from within the School, although a supervisor may be appointed from another School or from outside the university. The School has a number of research groups focusing on practical and important real'life problems.

Course Modules

Research areas include: thermal stress analysis; coupled structures and flow; electronic packaging; computer science; artificial intelligence; data mining; case'based reasoning; autonomic computing; operations research; internet technologies; multimedia; e'learning; fire safety engineering and evacuation; human behaviour, pedestrian dynamics, combustion and ventilation; parallel computing; continuum physics; algorithms and codes; computational fluid dynamics modelling.
