What is the Engineering Doctorate?

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is a well-established programme in the UK which produces postgraduate engineers – called “Research Engineers” or “REs” – who have the skills relevant to the needs of industry.

The EngD is a four-year programme that combines PhD-level research projects based on real business problems identified by the industrial partners, with a programme of taught courses which complement the research project. The Research Engineer's time is split between the Centre for Doctoral Training and the sponsoring company; the student will typically spend 75% of their time working directly with the sponsors.

Students undertaking an EngD through the Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonic Integration and Advanced Data Storage, continue to engage closely with the Centre even when they are based with the sponsor by taking part in cohort events, such as the CDT's Annual Summer Conclave and Winter Schools.

Two EngD positions are currently available for application for September 2020 Programme entry.
