The Doctor of Engineering (DEng) is a 4 years doctoral level programme combining academic research and scholarship with industrial problem-solving and project management. The programme incorporates the industrial relevant research, team leadership and unique university-industry partnership. The academic degree awarded on the basis of advanced study and research in engineering is equivalent to a PhD degree in engineering/ applied sciences. The innovative research output from the programme is expected to be immediately useful to the participating company.

The DEng programme offers an opportunity for outstanding engineers to enhance their qualification through a mix of broadly based technical and professional training while completing an industry based research project. Successful researchers after completing the programme not only graduate with a title Doctor of Engineering, but also with the important mix of professional skills, technical knowledge and research experience that will enable them to progress to senior positions within industry at an acceleration rate.
