EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantitative NDE
The Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantitative Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) was the previous RCNDE-related CDT (now available to new student cohorts via the FIND-CDT), coordinating exciting opportunities for collaborative industry-university research at a doctoral level in advanced sensor and imaging technology. The Centre is jointly sponsored by EPSRC and industrial partners, with students registered at Imperial College London and the Universities of Bristol, Manchester, Strathclyde, Nottingham and Warwick.
