Engineering Doctorates in Advanced Manufacturing for Engineers and Scientists
University of Strathclyde – Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) Department for Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM)
(4 year programme) fully funded scholarships available for an Engineering Doctorate in Advanced Manufacturing (EngD)
This Engineering Doctorate is offered by the Advanced Manufacturing Industrial Doctorate Centre (AMIDC) (http://www.strath.ac.uk/afrc/amidc). The Centre, which focuses on developing new and enhanced manufacturing techniques within the forming sector is a joint collaboration between Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) and the Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM). The AMIDC is the only established forging and forming research centre in the UK.
Students will undertake focused research to understand and develop solutions to the technical issues associated with manufacturing in an industrial context. The outputs from these projects will contribute valuable research to support the Manufacturing Industry, and working within sponsored companies will enable EngD candidates to help resolve issues and push the boundaries of current manufacturing techniques.
We are currently looking for outstanding graduates to join our September 2014 cohort who have achieved or are expected to achieve a first or second class Honours degree in Engineering, Science or Technology subject, or a Masters in Engineering.
