PhD Materials for Demanding Environments CDT / Overview
Year of entry: 2018
- Degree awarded
- Doctor of Philosophy
- 4 years
- Entry requirements
The minimum requirement for admission is an Upper Second Class Honours degree, or the overseas equivalent, in a science or engineering discipline.
- How to apply
We are looking for candidates with backgrounds in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Materials Science, Mathematics and other related science and engineering disciplines, to join the CDT in September 2018.
We keep a dynamic list of currently available projects . We suggest that candidates select a project and make contact directly with the project supervisor/s to inform them of your interest and to discuss the project (providing your CV at this stage would be worthwhile) before or whilst submitting your application. We recommend that you select up to three projects in which you might be interested: some supervisors might already have a candidate in mind and, when multiple candidates are being considered, additional options will help us to match each candidate to the most suitable project.
Once you are ready to begin the application process, please apply online through The University of Manchester online application system for postgraduate research programmes. You don't necessarily need to have all the required documents available at the time of submitting your application: they can be provided by email later (but we do advise that you do this ASAP). If you are currently studying, it would be useful to see your grades to date. You should be able to get an interim transcript (we know that these grades are often not confirmed) from your course administrator/s.
If you have any questions about this process, please get in touch .

Industry requires materials to perform well in demanding environments. The complex challenges they must contend with need an interdisciplinary approach in order to be tackled effectively.
The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Materials for Demanding Environments (M4DE) is a new training and research centre that aims to address complex industrial challenges. The four year course includes taught technical components with professional skills training, as well as a PhD level research project. Industrial partners play an active role in shaping and delivering the training.
This CDT will primarily focus on addressing the needs of the Oil and Gas, Aerospace and Nuclear Power industries, and will include cross-sector materials challenges.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK/EU students (per annum): #TBA
International students (per annum): #22000
