There has never been such a demand for composite specialists, and with advanced composites now a national strategic priority area for research, this is a truly exciting area to be working in. Our four year interdisciplinary PhD training aims to address the need for future leaders in this field. The CDT brings together scientists and engineers and benefits from strong industrial links. Our innovative programme includes an integrated taught component during the first year.
