Advanced Composites

There is increasing demand across a wide range of industrial sectors for new types of materials with superior properties, so the design and development of advanced high-performance composites is crucially important, both for now and for the future. The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Composites for Innovation and Science offers students with outstanding potential across engineering, science and mathematics the chance to participate in cohort-driven training in composite materials and structures technologies and undertake cutting-edge research.

You will participate in a four-year, fully-funded programme. The rewarding first year includes a stimulating series of seminars and lectures, a unique hands-on group project to design, build and test a composite structure and an individual six-month research project. This experience will enable you to broaden and deepen your core engineering skills and explore the research areas that interest you most. Towards the end of your first year you will choose your PhD project.
