The STREAM Industrial Doctoral Centre (IDC) is funded through the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Its ambitions are to deliver the next generation of research leaders for the water sector through a programme of leading edge research and advanced skills training. The STREAM programme is delivered by five collaborating universities, coordinated by Cranfield University and including Imperial College London and the universities of Exeter, Newcastle and Sheffield. It allows talented researchers to develop their skills and careers by studying for a PhD or EngD award. Enhanced stipends of £19k rising to £20k available for EngD students.
Our project sponsors are organisations that are committed to the support of long-term, high-quality research as a way of generating the knowledge and technologies needed to deliver sustainable water services and management.
Potential applicants for four year EngD or three year PhD positions should be able to demonstrate: enthusiasm; resourcefulness; a mature approach to learning; creativity; a sound understanding of one or more branches of science or engineering; and possess a first or upper second class honours degree.
The STREAM programme comprises three elements:
