Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)


This degree is open to those who hold either a bachelor's degree with first class or upper second class honours, or a master's degree, or who have appropriate research experience. It consists of an original research project embodied in a thesis on a topic of personal choice in the surveying, GIS and remote sensing subject areas. It normally requires three years full time study or can be undertaken on a part time basis.

All students should have at least one confirmed supervisor and will have developed a research proposal before applying for the PhD programme.
