Be a part of a diverse research community striving to push the boundaries of science and technology.

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) allows you to address current global challenges affecting industry today. With direct access to collaborators and employers, the EngD at WMG will enable you to work on live projects sponsored by companies and carry out applied research across the themes of Materials and Manufacturing, Digital Technologies, Organisational and Societal Transformation, Energy and Intelligent Vehicles.

The EngD at WMG brings real-world industry insight through focussing your research on industry-based engineering projects, whilst working with supervisors from both academic and industry backgrounds.

Your final submission will be in the form of a portfolio, rather than a single project, allowing for a broader range of knowledge and the ability to stay ahead of the game and fit the changing needs of industry.

Alongside your research, you will complete taught modules to broaden your knowledge in best industrial practice and develop key competencies needed to succeed in industry today.
