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