Engineering Graduate School - Faculty of Engineering, University of Sheffield

The Engineering Graduate School (EGS) aims to provide a central point of support to all postgraduate research (PGR) students and staff within the Faculty of Engineering.

The support provided by the EGS runs in conjunction with the advice and support offered by your department and that of Research Services which is University-wide.

We are committed to ensuring that we develop research leaders of the future who will have had enough time, space and freedom within our programmes here at the University of Sheffield to demonstrate creativity and excel academically. As you would expect, your research work will be guided by an experienced supervisory team who will support you in attaining the highest standards of research and intellectual development.

Whether you're a prospective student, current student or a member of staff who works with PGR students then our website should provide information on many aspects of postgraduate research matters. You can also contact us via email with any other queries you may have.
