Creating the next generation of engineers and scientists

22 November 2013

The Universities and Science Minister, David Willetts, will provide details of how a £350 million fund will be used to train tomorrow’s engineers and scientists at an event in London today.

The funding of over 70 new Centres for Doctoral Training, targeted at areas vital to economic growth, has been allocated by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).   The investment of £350 million, spread over 24 UK universities, will train over 3,500 postgraduate students.

The University of Bristol has been successful in receiving funding for seven Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) following the announcement of the UK’s largest investment in postgraduate training in engineering and physical sciences.  Among the seven, the Centre for Functional Nanomaterials continues its success - and Bristol's School of Physics will also participate in a new Centre in Quantum Engineering.  See Creating the next generation of engineers and scientists to find out more.
