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.
