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.
