Course Summary

This EPSRC-sponsored doctoral training programme focuses on research into structural metallic systems for gas turbine applications, covering alloy and process development, cost-reduction, life cycle analysis and environmental degradation. The quality of the research work in the School of Metallurgy and Materials has been confirmed by our outstanding performance in successive research assessments. Metallurgy and Materials and the IRC in Materials Processing together make up the largest centre for materials research in the UK. We are justly proud of this international reputation and are keen to maintain it by encouraging high quality students to undertake research with us. Our diverse research portfolio ranges from fundamental aspects of materials science to practical high performance engineering applications. Research is funded from a wide range of sources including the UK research councils, the EU and a cross-section of UK and overseas industry. Most of our research projects involve active collaboration with industrial partners. Preparation for your career should be one of the first things you think about as you start university. Whether you have a clear idea of where your future aspirations lie or want to consider the broad range of opportunities available once you have a Birmingham degree, our Careers Network can help you achieve your goal.
