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.

Research Engineers

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.

Our sponsors

We are proud to work with over 40 industrial sponsors, ranging from SMEs to large multi-national companies. The list below includes current and past sponsor relationships.
