Training the next generation of globally competitive doctoral level graduates with the knowledge, skillset, and mindset to lead the future UK and Ireland advanced manufacturing industry.


Who we are. The EPSRC and SFI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Advanced Metallic Systems is a partnership between three internationally recognised Centres of Excellence in metallic materials and manufacturing: The Universities of Sheffield and Manchester in the United Kingdom and the I-Form Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre based in Ireland.

Since starting in September I have built an understanding of metallurgy which I now feel confident to apply in a PhD level project, thanks to the CDT.

Our vision. Is to provide a stimulating multidisciplinary training experience.

Advanced Metallic Systems CDT approach. The Advanced Metallics CDT aims to address the critical shortfall in Metallurgical Specialists by providing an exciting modern approach to postgraduate research and training.

Kicking off our SME Consultancy Project with @Renthal_Moto today. 9 @MetallicsCDT students using their #materials #research expertise to solve manufacturing challenges. #collaboration #impact @msesheffield @I_Form_Centre

Our alumnus, Dr Nick Weston (@nicwes01) is giving a Keynote lecture at THE 14TH WORLD CONFERENCE ON TITANIUM June 10-14, 2019-Nantes, France (@Titanium_2019). Good Luck Nick! We also have over 10 current students presenting at the conference-it will be #titanium alloys paradise.

University receives funding boost to train tomorrow’s engineers. University of Sheffield to receive a share of £446m of funding to recruit PhD students in engineering and physical sciences. The funding will be a boost for the University's seven EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) which offer four-year training programmes designed to develop students’ professional skills and technical research experience. We are one of the centres.

10th cohort has arrived . A big welcome to our 10th cohort - our biggest cohort yet with 22 students. Currently at Cressbrook Hall and, as usual, having lots of fun. Lots of chatting going on - some of it even about metallurgy.
