EngD Funding

An Engineering Docorate is ideal for students who want to combine doctoral-level research with industrial experience as they carry out their research project whilst based in their sponsoring company.

This gives EngD students (or Research Engineers) the opportunity to appreciate the context and impact of their research first hand. More information about the Engineering Doctorate can be found on the Association of Engineering Doctorates website.

All EngD students are recruited directly to specific projects put forward by our industrial collaborators. Students from the UK or EU are eligible for these projects.

EngD studentships will be funded to at least the same level as our  PhD studentships. In 2016/17 that is £16,296 in the first year and at least £17,296 thereafter. Additional stipend enhancement is at the discretion of the sponsoring company.

Details of projects for the 2016 cohort will be available shortly.
