The AMS-CDT is the only metallic materials CDT in the UK, working across four renowned research-led universities (Sheffield, Manchester, University College Dublin and Dublin City University). We recruit graduates and, with industry, offer scholarships for a four-year PhD programme with training in metallic materials for digital manufacturing.

Why study with us
The high-value metals manufacturing sector has a significant shortage of skilled engineering graduates. The companies we work with (e.g. Rolls-Royce, Boeing, Airbus, BP, VW) consider novel metallic materials and engineering solutions for manufacturing as critical to R&D and growth in many topics (including aerospace, automotive, defence, health and renewable energy). We offer funded scholarships (typically approx. £18,000 stipend) to undertake a four-year PhD programme with additional training, to develop the skills to address these R&D issues.

Training and development
Our four-year programme comprises a first year of intense training in metallic materials in Sheffield, Manchester and Dublin, followed by a three-year PhD or EngD research project. Our first-year training programme is novel and evolves year-on-year to address state of the art in phase transformation, structure and mechanical properties, super-alloys, and digital metals manufacturing, processing and optimization for industry 4.0 skills. Our students also undertake an in-depth transferable skills training programme across the four years, that awards graduates a Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Skills.

Graduate schemes
All our schemes are for graduates only in STEMM disciplines.

What we are looking for
We recruit UK/EU graduates with a high 2.1 or first degree in any STEMM subject, to funded projects that provide a tuition fee and enhanced stipend (2019/20 PhD stipend £17,509/€18,000). We offer 19 scholarships per year (seven at Sheffield, seven at Manchester and five in Ireland). Please see our website for scholarship eligibility and available projects. As our students frequently travel between partner universities in the training programme, we seek candidates that can evidence high motivation.
