About

The Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies programme from the University of Surrey is a four-year doctoral programme for researchers who aspire to important leadership positions in industry. 

Overview

The Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies programme from the University of Surrey combines industrially-relevant research with taught courses, and gives you the opportunity to work closely with one of our industrial partners.

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in MiNMaT solves challenging and industrially relevant problems through a profound understanding of processing–microstructure–property relationships. We have a unique focus on characterisation, and provide sponsoring organisations with the use of state-of-the-art instrumentation and equipment. As a research engineer, you’ll be recruited to work with a specific sponsor on a mutually agreed project, and based primarily on the sponsoring organisation’s premises.

What you will study

The Micro- and NanoMaterials and Technologies EngD will give you the knowledge, skills and expertise needed for a career in industry, in research or academia. You’ll be intellectually challenged, develop research and management skills, and become an expert in the field. Working in an industrial organisation will give you experience of fast-paced commercial environments, which will be of great value to your future career.

The doctorate programme is designed to help you develop specialist scientific and technical knowledge while working in an industrial environment. The research you’ll carry out will be unique to you: it will take on an industrially-relevant research problem (or problems) and incorporate a significant degree of advanced characterisation. Most of your research will be done at your sponsor’s premises.

You’ll be supervised by a minimum of two members of academic staff, plus at least one industrial supervisor, who will provide a wealth of experience and expertise in this field of study and in industry. They’ll guide you through your EngD and develop you into an independent researcher and an ‘industry-ready’ graduate.
