The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students seeking a career in industry.
Students spend ca. 75% of their time working directly with a company, in addition to receiving advanced-level training from a broad portfolio of technical and business courses.
On completion, students are awarded the PhD-equivalent Engineering Doctorate.
The research projects will offer benefits to your company by:
Increasing the research portfolio in a cost-effective way
Providing access to University laboratories and facilities
- Creating opportunities to make contacts with other Sponsor Companies
- Aiding the retention of existing staff who wish to study for a doctorate degree and continue with their employment
