Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering

Studying at Cambridge


PhD Overview

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.
