EngD Student in AFRC

Advanced Forming Research Centre Engineering Doctorate (EngD) programme

You'll get the chance to work with global industrial companies

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is a four-year doctoral research programme involving a significant taught component.

The programme offers students and graduates a unique opportunity to to carry out in-depth study and research in advanced manufacturing techniques, forging and forming.

It provides ambitious and able students with the technical, business and personal development competencies needed to become the senior research managers of the future.

Unlike a traditional PhD, the EngD is focused on industry based research. On completion of the course, students will be awarded an EngD in Advanced Manufacturing: Forging & Forming, equivalent to a PhD.

Advanced Manufacturing Industrial Doctorate Centre (AMIDC)

The EngD programme is part of the Advanced Manufacturing Industrial Doctorate Centre (AMIDC), funded in part by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC´╗┐).

The AMIDC is a collaboration between the AFRC and the University of Strathclyde's Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM). It focuses on developing new and enhanced manufacturing techniques within the forming and forging sectors.
