Training the next generation of globally competitive doctoral level graduates
- to lead future metallic materials innovation in high added value manufacturing.
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.
The CDT was set up to address the critical shortage of doctoral level metallic material specialists in the UK. Graduates from physical science and engineering disciplines are trained in fundamental metallurgical science and engineering as well as undertaking an industry sponsored, multi-disciplinary cutting-edge doctoral project through our 4 year programme.
Applications are now open for 2016. See the Apply page for details of projects and how to submit an application.
