We aim to produce graduates with the depth of knowledge and breadth of skills to lead in addressing complex challenges in the UK automotive industry. Industry involvement during their PhDs enhances our students' training with relevant industrial problems, expertise and tools. Partnering with us gives you access to our high-quality research students and supervisors with diverse expertise.
How you can get involved
If you provide 100% funding for a project, your company owns the resultant IP with licensing to the University for research purposes.
If you provide 50% funding for a project, the University owns the resultant IP with licencing to your company for exploitation.
Available funded projects
We are looking for industrial support for these AAPS PhD projects
Building a supervision team that spans academia and industry is a great way to expose our PhD researchers to a wide range of expertise and experience. Working closely together helps us reach our common research goals, maximising the benefits.
We don't expect IP issues to be a barrier to any collaboration between AAPS and your company. The University has significant experience in working with industry and can be flexible in Intellectual Property arrangements and ownership.
As part of their research experience, we expect students to present to audiences both in and outside the University. If aspects of a project need to remain confidential, we can agree this before the project starts.
