Course Description

This programme is specifically designed to provide:

  • Knowledge to enhance technical capabilities within the subject area.
  • Understanding of how to innovate, generate and manage the creation of new ideas.
  • In-depth knowledge of a certain domain of knowledge, that is related to engineering.
  • Advanced research experience and skills that enable students to pursue a PhD programme.


Conversion to MPhil:

Students of the MPhil programme may convert their MPhil into a PhD candidate if they satisfy all the criteria below:

  1. Display excellent progress in their research.
  2. Able to demonstrate the potential of their project to be expended to PhD level.
  3. Pass a rigorous assessment.

Successful conversion means that the student will no longer be an MPhil candidate but will instead become a PhD candidate with their candidature start date backdated to their original MPhil registration date. Hence, it allows the student to gain a PhD award within a shorter timeframe, without the need to complete a Masters programme.


Modules and Assessments:

This programme is conducted by research and is assessed via oral presentations and reports at various junctures, including a Proposal Defence, regular half-yearly progress monitoring at research colloquiums, Work Completion Defence, Thesis Examination and Viva Voce. Students would need to take one taught module on Research Methodology to gain the pre-requisite knowledge to effectively carry out their research. Regular discussions with the supervisors would be expected to ensure the direction of research as well as the quality and significance of the findings.
