Course Introduction

A research degree provides the opportunity to investigate a topic in depth, and contribute new knowledge to your discipline. An MPhil involves the exploration of a research topic and is typically studied over a shorter period of 1 year for a full-time student and 2 years for a part-time student. MPhil students are required to demonstrate a systematic understanding of knowledge and a critical awareness of current problems and/or new insights informed by the forefront of their discipline, field of study or professional practice. Civil and Environmental Engineering research at Brunel University involves interdisciplinary activities where key aspects of engineering play fundamental role in the success for bridging the gap between the academia and industry. Our department has strong links with the industry where their research and development needs have well-established records of research excellence.
