Course Summary

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies (MiNMaT) is a four-year doctoral programme for researchers who aspire to important leadership positions in industry. The programme combines industrially-relevant research with taught courses, and gives you the opportunity to work closely with one of our industrial partners. The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in MiNMaT solves challenging and industrially relevant problems through a profound understanding of processing–microstructure–property relationships. We have a unique focus on characterisation, and provide sponsoring organisations with the use of state-of-the-art instrumentation and equipment. As a research engineer, you’ll be recruited to work with a specific sponsor on a mutually agreed project, and based primarily on the sponsoring organisation’s premises. Our work ranges from the manipulation of atoms and molecules to the design, analysis and development of large structures, leading to innovations in products as diverse as supercapacitors through to jet engines. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, 80 per cent of our ‘general engineering’ research outputs were rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’.

Our MiNMaT EngD will give you the knowledge, skills and expertise needed for a career in industry, in research or academia. You’ll be intellectually challenged, develop research and management skills, and become an expert in the field. Working in an industrial organisation will give you experience of fast-paced commercial environments, which will be of great value to your future career. Our doctorate programme is designed to help you develop specialist scientific and technical knowledge while working in an industrial environment. The research you’ll undertake will be unique to you: it will take on an industrially relevant research problem (or problems) and incorporate a significant degree of advanced characterisation. Most of your research will be done at your sponsor’s premises.
