Engineering - MSc by Research MSc

Two-thirds of this programme consist of a research project that enables the student to develop significant expertise in a particular subject. This is complemented by options from the Department's portfolio of Master's programmes.

The programme is ideal for an industry-based project and/or student. Research can be drawn from across the School's areas of interest and expertise, which include manufacturing systems, control and instrumentation, and bulk solids handling.

Recent research topics include:

  • The influence of product temperature upon adhesion to impact zones in process plants
  • The design, construction and testing of a test rig to evaluate elutriation segregation; caking problems due to coal-biomass mixes in silos; and approaches for inhibition of cake formation
  • The development of a fully automated elutriation tester
  • The use of standpipes as a means of allowing the development of full outlet area activation when used in conjunction with preferential flow channel feeders
  • A comparison of flow properties of coal, biomass and their mixes using small and large anular shear cells.
