The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
Students spend about 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 offers benefits to your company:
Increasing the research portfolio in a cost-effective way
Access to University laboratories and facilities
Opportunity to make contacts with other Sponsor Companies
Aiding retention of existing staff who wish to study for a doctorate degree and continue with their employment
