What are the centres?

In 2009, the University of Surrey was awarded a £12m grant from the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to launch two prestigious Doctorate Centres. 

Surrey is home to the Centre for Doctoral Training in Micro-and Nano-Materials and Technologies (MiNMaT) and the Industrial Doctorate Centre in Sustainability for Engineering & Energy Systems (SEES).

Both provide a supportive and engaging environment for students to carry out challenging Engineering Doctorate (EngD) research projects The centres also provide a framework for high quality collaboration between academics and industry sponsors.
