Training the next generation of globally competitive doctoral level graduates - to lead future metallic materials innovation in high added value manufacturing.


Who we are. The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Advanced Metallic Systems is a partnership between two internationally recognised Centres of Excellence in metallic materials at the Universities of Sheffield and Manchester.

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. Advanced Metallics CDT aims to address this shortfall by providing an exciting new approach to postgraduate research and training in this area.

Congratulations to Faris Karouni who won the best paper prize for his work with Sheffield Forgemasters  and Ben Jones  on winning the poster prize for his work with @BritishSteelUK at the @MPI_UK ferrous metallurgy symposium!

Looking forward to an exciting day of talks, tours and experiments @BCAST_Brunel with our first year cohort.

Postgraduate Research Symposium on Ferrous Metallurgy. The first Annual Postgraduate Research Symposium on Ferrous Metallurgy took place at Armourers Hall in London on the 27th of February.

Science Communication at the BBC. Our final year students recently attended a course to learn about science journalism through the experience of creating their own radio and TV broadcasts.
