The Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is a research degree awarded for making a significant contribution to knowledge; in our case to the subjects associated with Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The period of research is three to four years.
Our Department is one of the largest electrical and electronic engineering departments in the UK. We have strong links with industry in a number of sectors and are renowned for our theoretical and applied research. We have over 70 academic staff and their research interests cover virtually all aspects of the subject; from the generation and distribution of electrical energy through to photonics and functional materials.

Fees for entry in 2021 have not yet been set. For reference, the fees for the academic year beginning September 2020 were as follows:
UK students (per annum): £4,407
International, including EU, students (per annum): Standard £24,000; Band B £25,000; Band C £26,000; Band D £28,000
Further information for EU students can be found on our dedicated EU page.
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
