Undertaking a PhD is amongst the most difficult and rewarding things you will do in your career. Having a PhD provides the research training and confidence to address any technical problem thrown at you. It is not surprising many senior industry technical leaders have one. Bristol strives for the highest quality of research and provide PhDs the support and equipment needed to fulfil their potential.
