Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering


PhD, Years 2–4

The students were encouraged to source their own PhD projects, but they were also given a list of optional PhD projects for their consideration. The majority of students continued on their long MRes projects into their PhD, but this wasn't a requirement of the course.

Working with Industry

Most Ultra Precision PhD projects offered to the students had a project sponsor. As well as supporting the student and project financially this engagement results in a strong collaboration from research to industry resulting in a direct impact on the commercial activities.
