Students looking to become world-leading experts as they push the boundaries of knowledge in their field should pursue a research-based Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (PhD Thesis) degree. With the support of leading researchers, students will perform innovative and cutting-edge research, publishing their knowledge in peer-reviewed manuscripts and disseminating their findings through everything from conferences to peer-reviewed publications and technical papers. The program usually takes three years of full-time study following a master’s degree, or four years following a bachelor’s degree. PhD students are typically funded through the duration of their studies under various mechanisms offered by the faculty, department, and supervisor.
All graduate students must pay general fees each year, as well as program fees.
