PhD research

The Structures PhD community is the largest of such groups in the Department, covering the spectrum from theoretical and numerical to laboratory-based research.

The Structures PhD community is the largest of such groups in the Department, covering the spectrum from theoretical and numerical to laboratory-based research. The group has an active and popular Research Seminar Series of invited speakers running throughout the year, these are listed in the Departmental Events feed. 

Key information

  • standard cohort entry is October in each year, but may be acceptable to start at any point subject to the approval of sponsors, supervisor(s) and  the Department.
  • normal duration of PhD is three to 3.5 years.
  • every student will have a minimum of one academic supervisor;
  • with prior agreement every student will have access to facilities and services appropriate to their work;
  • every student will have access to Professional Skills Training and Career Development;
  • part-time study is available where the student is nor restricted by visa attendance requirements; 
  • the programmes carry the award of the PhD degree together with the Diploma of Imperial College (DIC).
