PhD degree programmes enable students to undertake cutting edge research work for a period of up to three-and-a-half years.
It’s expected the outcomes of this research will represent a significant and original advancement of knowledge in the chosen field and will be published in leading science and/or engineering journals, as well as in the end of programme doctoral thesis. PhD programmes can be self-funded or sponsored by industry, the University, a research council, or combination of these.
The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is a four-year doctoral research programme involving a significant taught component. The programme offers students and graduates a unique opportunity to carry out in-depth study and research in advanced manufacturing techniques, forging and forming. It provides ambitious and able students with the technical, business and personal development competencies needed to become the senior research managers of the future.
Unlike a traditional PhD, the EngD is focused on industry based research. On completion of the course, students will be awarded an EngD in Advanced Manufacturing: Forging & Forming, equivalent to a PhD.
The EngD programme is part of the Advanced Manufacturing Industrial Doctorate Centre (AMIDC), funded in part by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). The AMIDC is a collaboration between the Advanced Forming Research Centre and our department. It focuses on developing new and enhanced manufacturing techniques within the forming and forging sectors.

The programme will help you to develop your knowledge and understanding of manufacturing issues, gain industrial experience and learn how to expertly communicate and implement real-world engineering solutions. You'll get the chance to work with global industrial companies and enhance your CV. Unlike a traditional PhD, the EngD is focused on industry-based research, working at the centre or within the industrial sponsors’ facilities. Programme output is research-based solutions for industry identified manufacturing issues.
An Industrial Doctorate is an industrially-focused three-year equivalent research project and PhD education, conducted jointly by a private sector company, an Industrial PhD candidate and the University of Strathclyde.
The Industrial PhD candidate is employed by the company throughout the time enrolled at the University, with the employer covering the fees.
