CDT in Additive Manufacturing
and 3D Printing


The primary objective of this Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is to produce research leaders in Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing (3DP). 

It will provide the people and talent, able to tackle the major scientific and engineering challenges in enabling AM to play a prominent role in manufacturing. 

The challenges encompass a wide range of disciplines from chemistry and physics, to computer science, engineering and biomaterials. The CDT is seeking talented individuals that are able to work across these disciplines to make AM and 3DP the enabler for a better economy, environment and society.

The CDT is led by The University of Nottingham in partnership with Loughborough University, Newcastle University and the University of Liverpool. Backed by the EPSRC Centre of Innovative Manufacturing in AM, it brings together the UK's foremost AM research institutions to generate the next leaders of this exciting technology.

CDT student recruitment for October 2017 is now open. To apply, please visit findaphd.com.
