    Programme Description

    The Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science Doctoral Training Centre (ACCIS DTC) offers exceptional candidates across Engineering, Science and Mathematics the unique opportunity to become involved with exciting groundbreaking research in composite materials and structures technologies. This four-year fully funded programme includes a taught element in the first year, which will fast-track graduates with Science and Mathematics backgrounds to acquire core Engineering skills and promote the exploration of the interfaces between Science and Engineering. Those with Engineering backgrounds will broaden their scientific skills before specialising in either composite materials development or application.

    The DTC is based within ACCIS, which brings together composites activities across the University of Bristol, based in the Faculty of Engineering and linking to the Science and Medical Faculties. The vision of ACCIS is to be a world leading centre for composites research, combining cutting edge fundamental science with strong industrial links for exploitation and technology transfer. ACCIS is a focus for collaboration internally, nationally and internationally, and was recently selected by UK Government to lead the establishment of the UK National Composites Centre to form an internationally leading hub, linking activities across all sectors of the UK in research, education and training, technology transfer and incubation of new enterprises.
