Centre for Doctoral Training in Additive Manufacturing


The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Additive Manufacturing has recently launched the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Additive Manufacturing. 

The primary objective of the CDT is to produce research leaders to tackle the major scientific and engineering challenges over the next 10-15 years in enabling Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing to play a prominent role in manufacturing, providing the people and talent to fuel this new industrial revolution. These challenges encompass a wide range of scientific disciplines from chemistry and physics to computer science, engineering and bio-materials in order for AM and 3DP to be successfully adopted as a technology that can enable almost every sector of society and business i.e. aerospace through to medicine.

The Centre is seeking talented individuals that are willing and able to work across these disciplines to make AM and 3DP the enabler for a better economy, environment and society.

The distinguishing features of PhD programmes in our CDT are the 4 year duration with specific training in AM and 3DP methods and techniques, increased stipend compared to standard PhDs, specific links with industrial partners and the requirement that some of the time (a minimum of 3 months) is spent conducting research in industry.

The CDT in AM and 3DP is backed by the EPSRC Centre of Innovative Manufacturing in AM, and brings together the UK's foremost AM research institutions to generate the next leaders of this exciting technology.
