EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Materials for Demanding Environments

Our Centre seeks to recruit motivated science & engineering graduates into an exciting, world-class research & training environment that will address complex industrial challenges. The envelope of materials performance is being pushed to ever more demanding environments – the challenges are complex & require an interdisciplinary approach.

What is the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT)

We offer a comprehensive training programme that focusses on developing interdisciplinary skills & expertise. The 4 year course includes taught technical components & professional skills training, as well as a PhD level research project. Industrial partners will play an active role in shaping & delivering the training.
