I completed both a BS and MS degree in Engineering, from a decent US University. My Masters GPA was 3.75/4.00. I have since left the program and began working. I want to enter a top UK Engineering PhD program but my research might be slightly subpar, depending on the standards. During my time as a Masters Student, I was only 2nd author of 1 journal paper and 1 conference paper. I was NOT 1st author of any publication.
- Can you get into a top UK Engineering PhD program (Imperial, Cambridge, UCL, Oxford) with limited research experience (in my case, zero 1st author publications)?
- What are the credentials of a competitive candidate for top UK universities (for an Engineering PhD)?
