Engineering Doctorate

The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) is an alternative to the traditional PhD for students who want a career in industry. A four-year programme combines PhD-level research projects with masters-level technical and MBA courses, and students spend about 75% of their time working directly with a company. UniKLasers is the industrial partner and have three opened projects. All projects will be run from UniKLasers’ site in Edinburgh, Scotland. Students are co-supervised by an industrial and academic supervisor and submit a thesis which is examined in a similar way to a PhD. The programme duration is four years. EPSRC funding is available to EU and UK-nationals.
