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.

Delighted to be awarded @EPSRC renewal funding to recruit #STEM students in #metallurgical challenges for #digital #manufacturing. Exciting projects with e.g. @VWGroup @Airbus @rrollsroyce Open days in March @msesheffield @UoMMaterials @I_Form_Centre see 

The culmination of our new cohort's team building activities in the Peak District. Making rockets with a raw egg as cargo. In this instance we are glad to report a very safe landing. Thanks to Jodie and the team @TEAL_outdoors for a great time. @msesheffield @UoMMaterials @EPSRC

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.
