Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics
The Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics is offering 10 fully funded places to exceptional candidates.
The CDT offers a 4 year programme with an emphasis on research and development in a commercial environment. Most research in the Centre takes the form of EngD projects but some PhD projects will be available.
The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is an alternative to the traditional PhD for students who want a career in industry. The programme combines PhD-level research projects with masters-level technical and MBA courses, and the students spend about 75% of their time working directly with a company.
Funds are also available to support company employees who wish to study for an EngD whilst remaining in employment.
Fee plus stipend of a minimum £20,326 for EngD researchers and £15,326 for PhD researchers.
1st class or 2.1 degree at MPhys or MEng level in physical sciences, particularly physics and electrical engineering graduates. Exceptional applicants from a BSc or BEng programme are also to be considered.
