Hello, everybody! I'm new here and really hope that you guys can help me out. Thank you.
I've got 3 offers from universities in the title with the same funding. My research project would be MEMS-related (MicroElectroMechanical system). Supervisors in both Leeds and Birmingham are professors with excellent publications (Leeds is better, to be exact), whilst supervisor in Glasgow is not a professor with not so good publications. My follow-up plan after PhD graduation is to find a job in companies in UK or US.
Does anyone know about MEMS in these universities? Which university has the best research facilities and the best job prospects. Which offer should I take?
Hi, It is not clear from your post that if Etching/Fabrication etc would be a requirement or only simulation is needed for this PhD. Personally, I do not like Glasgow as a city, been there during early 90s and lived in Maclay Hall near woodlands road and Kelvin Park. Left within 3 months and I hated the local Accent. I found Glasgow a terrible city littered with street begging and drug gangs. I been to Birmingham University to visit a mate doing PhD there and she is not very happy about the help received from her department and had been left alone to perform her research. I think she was in Engineering College.
Personally, I think that Leeds has far better + a professional research reputation. Go for Leeds(up)
