Postgraduate Study at the PTMC
The Centre for Power Transmission and Motion Control offers a wide range of PhD research opportunities in the fields of fluid power, motion control, machine dynamics and mechatronic systems. Projects often link with industry and research in the Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre, Centre for Biomimetics and Natural Technologies, Centre for Orthopaedic Biomechanics and Powertrain and Vehicle Research Centre. This gives research students the opportunity to work on inter-disciplinary projects with strong industrial relevance.
EngD in Systems
The University of Bath has set up an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) Centre in Systems for "Managing Systems for Enhanced Performance" in association with the University of Bristol. It covers diverse backgrounds in Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering Management. Research Engineers spend 75% of their time in a collaborating company. They may be employees from the company or sponsored by an EPSRC stipend plus company enhancement over the 4-year duration of the degree.
