Opportunities to carry out research in the Institutes of Technology at Masters and Doctoral level occur regularly. The Institutes are interested in attracting talented individuals worldwide who would like to complete a Masters by Research or Doctoral Degree. One strong element of many of our research degree programmes is the opportunity to work closely with enterprise or community partners.
