Brunel University London

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. Our Design research vision is to be a leading provider of design research that responds to major societal issues and is at the forefront of new and emerging technologies and design practice. Design at Brunel is an interdisciplinary activity and our research approach seeks to integrate human, environmental and technological elements ? combining human centred design investigation with technological or systems factors, enabled by design thinking and processes. Brunel Design has a well-established record of research excellence, with multidisciplinary, product related design research grounded on strong engineering design traditions.
