A solid grounding in science and engineering principles that underpin the global nuclear industry. You will also benefit from a connection, via the South West Nuclear Hub, to the University of Bristol’s UK-leading industrial research.
Providing an in-depth theoretical understanding and practical knowledge of advanced composite materials, this programme is based in the Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science (ACCIS). As one of the world's leading centres in composite materials, it houses a number of state-of-the-art composites manufacturing facilities.
Exposure to advanced engineering and computer science concepts, provides the ability to understand, design and implement modern robotic systems.
Main research areas: dynamics and control, solid mechanics, engineering systems and design, ultrasonics and non-destructive testing, robotics, fluid and aerodynamics.
Our four-year programme leads to the award of a joint PhD degree from both the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England.
Our four-year integrated PhD programme begins with a structured year of training, giving you all the foundational skills necessary for you to prosper in your PhD research.
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Composites for Innovation and Science offers students with outstanding potential across engineering, science and mathematics the chance to participate in cohort-driven training in composite materials and structures technologies and undertake cutting-edge research.
The Centre for Doctoral Training in Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) facilitates collaborative industry-university research in advanced sensor and imaging technology. The Centre is jointly sponsored by EPSRC and industrial partners, with students registered at the Universities of Bristol, Manchester, Strathclyde, Nottingham, Warwick and Imperial College London, where the Centre is managed.
The UK government is offering a Postgraduate Master's Loan to UK and EU nationals (conditions apply).
