The M2A currently has two technical streams; functional coatings provided by the EPSRC COATED2 CDT and Advanced Materials and Manufacturing.
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Industrial Functional Coatings, COATED2, provides exciting research opportunities to develop and upscale advanced coatings for energy generation, storage and release. There is also considerable focus on the durability of such materials with regards to environmental degradation and corrosion.
This technical stream provides expert technical knowledge in all areas of Materials and Manufacturing. Current projects areas encompass research topics as varied as advanced steel metallurgy, composite manufacture and modelling of advanced speed boat hulls.
