Postgraduate studies

Researching real issues

The EDC has surpervised many postgraduate students through the course of its history. Our students find having close links to industrial partners gives their work more meaning and makes it more enjoyable. Not to mention looking more impressive on their CV!

Postgraduate students are a vital part of the EDC and are fully involved in all research activities. As an EDC postgraduate you will be expected to work at a high level and produce world class research that will be published in the most prestigeous journals
