University of Warwick


This programme combines research and industrial experience. It is equivalent to a PhD but with a wider, more practical focus and an emphasis on innovation. The flexibility of the EngD means you can start at whatever stage you are in your career, as the programme is responsive to your needs and that of the industry. The majority of the time is spent in the company. Some participants remain with their current employer, others will be associated with a company that is supporting the project.
