The Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) acknowledges that significant research takes place within the practitioner workplace. It recognises the intellectual effort that supports original and innovative work in a range of professional and technological fields. A professional doctorate involves investigating and solving real-world problems faced in the daily workplace.
This programme is designed to produce Masters graduates who have an in-depth knowledge of instrumentation involved in Materials analysis and characterisation together with a detailed knowledge of Materials Science, Materials Processing, and Surface Technology. The specialist modules will allow students to become fully briefed in the material Science & Engineering associated with high strength materials used in the aero-industry or with techniques for materials and coatings selection design, together with the materials selection methods typically employed by engineering consultants.
