A PhD challenges you to make a significant and original contribution to knowledge in your field by developing new ideas, or new ways of approaching existing problems. Through the course of your PhD, you will help develop new theories, methodologies and models that may shape the future of your profession or discipline.
Depending on the faculty you study in, you can either design your own topic for research, or choose from suggested student topics. If you are designing your own topic, we strongly suggest aligning the topic with one of our research priorities.
A PhD is ideal if you:
- want to make a significant original contribution to your field
- plan to pursue a career in industry, government or academia
- are self-motivated and able to commit to a large-scale project over several years.
