Course content

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Composites Manufacture is a four-year postgraduate research programme, which integrates an industry-based research project with research training in technical subjects, as well as business skills and transferable skills training. Each EngD research project is designed around the sponsor company's research priorities. Due to the nature of the funding, this programme is open to home/EU students only.

The EngD programme is run by the Industrial Doctorate Centre (IDC) in Composites Manufacture, which is firmly embedded within the EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub. The IDC is a collaboration between the University of Bristol (the lead university), Cranfield University, the University of Manchester and the University of Nottingham. EngD students benefit from the use of cutting-edge equipment and expertise at the universities and at the National Composites Centre, which provides a world-class facility to bridge the gap between research and industrial application.

The IDC aims to provide the UK composites manufacturing industry with EngD graduates who are equipped with the advanced technical and leadership skills required for effective adoption of new knowledge and technologies in composites manufacture. The relevant industry areas include aerospace, automotive, marine, wind energy and construction.
