Summary

Our Integrated PhD provides research training, supervision and collaboration to international standards. Your research project will be in one of the areas addressed by our research groups.

The research project comprises an original piece of work combining both experiment and theory. Your thesis should explore, in detail, some element of engineering or science as applied in the marine environment. Where appropriate, you will be encouraged to take advantage of our strong links with the marine industry to carry out your research project in an industrial context. Recent partnerships and collaborations include International Paint, Lloyds Register and BAE Systems.

Your research project is normally in one of the areas addressed by our research groups:
•Oceans and Climate (OC)
•Marine Biology Ecosystems and Governance (MBEG)
•Marine Resources and Renewable Energy (MRRE)
•Marine Hydrodynamics and Structures (MHS)
•Sustainable Shipping and Marine Engineering (SSME)

Delivery:

The Integrated PhD involves the study of 120 credits worth of Master's level taught modules. These will be taken during the first three years of the course alongside your research project. You can choose from one of the following:
•International Marine Environmental Consultancy, MSc ()
•Marine Engineering, MSc (**)
•Naval Architecture, MSc (**)
•Marine Transport Management, MSc (**)
•Offshore Engineering, MSc (**)
•Pipeline Engineering, MSc
•Subsea Engineering and Management, MSc (*)

() You take an additional 10 credits of modules from another MSc course
(*) You take an additional 20 credits of modules from another MSc course

Our substantial marine technology research community includes 50 research students, 140 MSc students, six to 10 post-doctoral students, six technicians and 16 full-time academic staff. This provides you with opportunities to progress your career, whether in industry or academia. Our annual Postgraduate Research Conference gives you an opportunity to share research experience and practise vital presentation skills.

We hold joint meetings of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), which you are invited to join as they offer vital insight into the workings of professional bodies.

Our research students have been very successful at finding employment across a wide range of sectors. Professional institutes hold Newcastle research degrees in high regard when assessing work applications.

Accreditation:

Our course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) on behalf of the Engineering Council. This means that you are automatically recognised as satisfying the educational requirements leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects is an internationally renowned professional institution whose members are involved at all levels in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marine vessels and structures. Members of RINA are widely represented in industry, universities and colleges, and maritime organisations in over 90 countries.

IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, scientists and technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body.

Our accreditations give you an additional benchmark of quality to your degree, making you more attractive to graduate employers. It can also open the door to higher-level jobs, most of which require Chartered Engineer status.

Facilities:

You have access to a wealth of excellent facilities within the School of Marine Science and Technology, including extensive laboratories such as the:
•Hydrodynamics laboratory
•Emerson Cavitation Tunnel
•Princess Royal, a versatile twin-hulled locally designed and built vessel supported by a dedicated shore station at Blyth Harbour.
