Centre for Doctoral Training
We host a prestigious EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies (MiNMaT) which offers the Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies EngD course that combines industrially-relevant research with a taught element.
The Centre supports research engineers whilst they are based both at their sponsors organisation and here on campus over their four years.
