About the Centre

The Doctoral Training Centre in Advanced Metallic Systems and Challenges in Global Competitiveness was established in January 2009, with a £6.3M investment from EPSRC, to provide a national training centre for doctoral scientists and engineers in metallurgy and related disciplines.

The centre aims to underpin UK manufacturing strategy by addressing a growing doctoral skills gap in metallurgical science and engineering. We offer an exciting and interdisciplinary approach to postgraduate research training, combining an interactive taught foundation year with a three year Doctoral level thesis project. This is supplemented by training in professional skills and project placements in industry or research institutes in the UK and overseas.
