Our vision is two-fold: to deliver highly-skilled people to industry and to develop the next generation of multifunctional composite materials. Our four-year PhD programme comprises a one-year innovative taught component and a three-year research project. The taught component will fast-track graduates with science and mathematics backgrounds to acquire core engineering skills, while engineering graduates will broaden their scientific knowledge before specialising in industrial application.

The taught component involves attending a number of lecture courses and associated lab classes, significant self-teaching in small groups, a seminar series, a journal club and a group Design, Build & Test (DBT) assignment. Students then complete a six month individual research project before starting their PhD project.
