The key to a successful research programme is to find a research subject that you are passionate about, and a supervisory team that have the expertise in this area. The first thing that all students should do is directly contact a member of staff who works in an area that you are interested in.
To support students' experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February, or May.
In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with supervisors on an individual basis.
Highly skilled engineers are in demand in the UK and overseas, and through teaching methods and high levels of employer collaboration, our programmes aim to prepare graduates for careers across this dynamic and challenging sector. Completion of this research programme may assist you in developing your career as a professional engineer. Graduates may also choose to pursue a range of career opportunities in academia.

Support is available across the University, offering a friendly, creative, and academically challenging research environment.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
