Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems
Established in 2009 with a £6.3M investment from EPSRC, the CDT in Advanced Metallic Systems aims to address a growing skills gap in metallurgical science and engineering by providing a national doctoral training centre.
The Centre is collaboration between The University of Sheffield and The University of Manchester, involving seven internationally leading research groups in metallic systems and their engineering.
A Different Approach
We offer an exciting and interdisciplinary approach to postgraduate research training. Our students come from a range of engineering and physical science backgrounds and the interactive taught first year provides everyone with an underpinning knowledge of materials science before embarking on a three year Doctoral level thesis project. This is supplemented by training in professional skills and project placements in industry or research institutes in the UK and overseas.
Applications are now open for 2013 entry.
