EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Composites Science, Engineering and Manufacturing (CoSEM CDT)
About EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Composites Science, Engineering and Manufacturing (CoSEM CDT)
Our CDT develops highly talented science and engineering graduates by giving them the technical toolsets and the multidisciplinary research and professional skills required to become the next generation of technology leaders in the science, engineering and manufacture of advanced composite materials.
Why study with us
Imagine shape-changing aircraft, cars or wind turbines that have thermal management, sensing, actuating and self-repair functionality embedded within their materials and structures. By joining the CoSEM CDT you will undertake cohort-driven training and cutting-edge research, which could make these technological visions a reality.
On completion of the programme you will leave with far more than just a PhD; you will have the skills, knowledge and acumen to become a future technical leader in advanced composites, be it in academia or industry.
Training and development
Our four-year PhD comprises a one-year innovative taught component and three-year research project. The taught component fast-tracks graduates with science backgrounds to acquire core engineering skills, while engineering graduates broaden their scientific knowledge before specializing in their chosen subject.
You will be working in a collaborative and stimulating environment where knowledge-sharing and joint problem solving is the norm. The interdisciplinary nature of the CDT will make you think about problems from a whole new perspective and explore really innovative ideas.
