The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850m a year, www.epsrc.ac.uk
Students undertake a 4 year PhD, where the first year allows students to explore the research area and build strong expertise in their “home” discipline while developing the skills and knowledge to cross disciplinary boundaries effectively.
Students also undertake a formal programme of taught coursework to develop and enhance technical knowledge across a range of appropriate disciplines, as well as enhancing skills.
Each centre has up to 10 fully funded studentships available per year.
The centres include the full breadth of engineering and physical sciences, including nanoscience, computing and medical devices.
