Engineering Doctorate in Advanced Manufacturing


Course Description

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)

September 2014

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.

Funding Opportunities

UK applicants are eligible to apply for the full scholarship (covering fees and stipend) The annual tax-free stipend starting at 15k.

Scott Advanced Manufacturing Scholarships - 20+ Awards

The MSc programme has been developed in collaboration with industrial partners who are already working closely with the Faculty of Engineering at Strathclyde through three of the eight Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) in which we are currently involved. Our industry partners will remain engaged throughout the programmes, providing exciting project opportunities for students to work on as part of their postgraduate degree study.The overall objective of the course is to develop high calibre masters graduates with an in-depth understanding of advanced, industry-relevant manufacturing technology and systems, and with the skills to meet industrial needs. Manufacturing is still a core industry in a global context. Despite concern that job opportunities for university gradates have been reduced recently in some sectors, a significant number of manufacturing employers have expressed specific recruitment difficulties due to lack of applicants with the required qualifications and skills.The aim of developing an in-depth understanding of manufacturing technology and specialist skills is to address the balance in manufacturing education, and ultimately, to help manufacturing industry in gaining competitive advantages in strategically important areas such as manufacturing automation, advanced production techniques and micro/nano-manufacturing, the latter being important in reforming current industry, shaping future manufacturing industry and developing the next generation of industrial products which are relevant to all major industrial sectors – energy, transport, health care, food and consumer goods.On the completion of the course, the participants will be equipped with state-of-the-art concepts, methods, tools and techniques relating to advanced manufacturing technology and systems. Through participating in speciality-focused streams and undertaking industrially-relevant projects, it is expected that the graduates will be able to apply their learnt knowledge and trained skills to the solution of some of the technological problems faced by current industry and able to gain competent technological expertise and skills to enhance their job opportunities. Unique Course Features
•The course is run in collaboration with the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) of the University, which is co-hosted by the Department. AFRC is sponsored by multi-nations, large enterprises including Rolls-Royce, Boeing, etc.•Besides common modules to be learnt, the course offers an option for students to develop specialist knowledge/skills in the following disciplines: Manufacturing Automation, Mechatronics, Micro- and Nano-Manufacturing, and Advanced Forming Technology.

Engineering Doctorate in Advanced Manufacturing (EngD) - 15 Awards

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is a four-year doctoral research programme involving a significant taught component. It provides ambitious and able students with the technical, business and personal development competencies needed to become the senior research managers of the future.A key element of the programme is the close link with the sponsoring company. At least 75% of a student's time over the four years will be spent working on research of interest to the sponsor.The programme follows a 1 + 3 year model.Year 1: spent studying manufacturing and engineering related classes and beginning initial research scoping project.Providing a solid grounding of knowledge in manufacturing and engineering, equipping EngD student’s with the understanding to undertake their industry research thesis project.Years 2, 3 and 4: the student will build a research thesis from working directly with an industrial company on a specific manufacturing area.Building on academic knowledge within a working environment, dealing with actual manufacturing issues and the demands of an industrial company. EngD students will be able to see how their research could; be used with production, improve efficiency, reduce cost, and support environmental aspects.Unlike a traditional PhD, the EngD is focused on industry based research based within a host company. On completion of the course, students will be awarded an EngD in Advanced Manufacturing: Forging and Forming, equivalent to a PhD, a Doctorate in Philosophy.

The Engineering Doctorate is an opportunity to achieve a qualification that is more appropriate in pursuing a professional based industry career. The Doctorate has the same prestige and ranking of a traditional PhD qualification and benefits you in contributing towards a Chartered Engineer (CEng) qualification.•UK applicants are eligible to apply for the full scholarship (covering fees and and tax-free stipend)
