We work with Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) to help us provide research opportunities and training specific to chemical engineering researchers.
Find out more about these Centres, and the development you could benefit from by studying with them.
GrapheneNOWNANO covers the science and applications of graphene and related materials led by the Department of Physics.
Our Department is involved in the science of 2D materials and their exploitation for novel separation techniques, production of polymer nano-composites, fuel cells applications and sensors for environmental and biomedical applications. Various interdisciplinary projects combining experimental and modelling techniques are available each year.
Materials for Demanding Environments CDT
Industry requires materials to perform well in demanding environments. The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Materials for Demanding Environments (M4DE) was founded in 2014 as a new training and research centre that aims to address complex industrial challenges. 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.
Next Generation Nuclear CDT
The Next Generation Nuclear CDT aims to develop research leaders of the future to support the UK's strategic nuclear programmes: cleaning up the nuclear legacy, building new nuclear power stations, and defence and security. It is a partnership between the Universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield.
Regenerative Medicine CDT
The Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine is an interdisciplinary centre co-sponsored by EPSRC and MRC, which accepts applications from a wide variety of undergraduate backgrounds, ranging from science and engineering to medicine. Its general focus is on laying down the foundation for new medical therapies for pathologies that range from trauma to muscular dystrophy, from diabetes to Alzheimer’s.
