The award from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) will provide around 64 studentships in the fields of science and engineering.
Announced by the Business Secretary Greg Clark, the funding will be allocated over two years, supporting doctoral training over the next four years.
Next generation of engineers and scientists
“Doctoral Training Partnerships have an excellent record of providing universities with funding that supports doctoral students as they undertake ground-breaking research,” said Mr Clark.
“Through our commitment to increasing research and development funding by a further £2.3 billion to 2021/22, we are ensuring that the next generation of engineers and scientists will continue to thrive under our modern and ambitious Industrial Strategy.”
Supported through industry
A number of these positions will be in partnership with CASE partners, who provide additional investment and industrial placements.
The EPSRC DTP award also supports the University’s investment in Early Career Researchers by providing Doctoral Prize Fellow positions. These Fellowships are an opportunity for the very best EPSRC-funded PhD students to receive twelve months of additional support following their PhD.
