What you’ll get out of it
The CoSEM CDT has exceptional industrial links, with many of the three-month and PhD projects offered by industrial partners, giving you valuable experience of working with technical industry experts and through international placements. You will work in a collaborative and stimulating environment, strengthened by a series of cohort-driven activities, where knowledge-sharing and joint problem solving is the norm. The interdisciplinary nature of the Centre will make you think about problems from a whole new perspective and explore really innovative ideas.
On completion of the programme you will leave with far more than just a PhD; you will have the skills, knowledge and acumen to become the future technical leaders in advanced composites, be it in academia or industry.
More about the Bristol Composites Institute
The first ACCIS CDT was established in 2009 and is based in the Bristol Composites Institute, a world-leading research centre at the heart of the UK Government Composites Strategy. Since then EPSRC has funded two further CDTs within the BCI – the CoSEM CDT being the most recent, with the first intake arriving in September 2019. BCI has over 150 researchers, many working on industrially relevant projects within the aerospace, wind, marine, and automotive industries. BCI works closely with the National Composites Centre (NCC), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the University, to explore fully all composites opportunities for the UK. BCI and the NCC work together to engage students, researchers, industry and funders to provide a seamless route for the exploitation of our research.
