EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies
The core of our Centre lies in solving academically challenging and industrially relevant problems through a profound understanding of processing–microstructure–property relationships. We have a unique focus on characterisation and provide sponsoring organisations with use of state-of-the-art instrumentation equipment.
Become a student
Engineering doctorate (EngD) students, or research engineers as they are known, are part of our Centre and will spend four years principally with their industrial sponsor, and return to the University for courses and to use the characterisation facilities.
