Steering group

The Steering group is composed of stakeholders and research experts who are passionate advocates of the EngD model. Our role is to ensure the relevance of the programme for industrial applications at the same time as maintaining academic rigour. We also seek to build links with related communities and influence the next generation of research leaders.
