Industry Doctorate Programme in Advanced Manufacturing

Scotland’s manufacturing sector recognises that skills are an essential component of growth and innovation. Business leaders have identified a need for strategic support to help them understand where and how they should allocate their manufacturing investment to effectively develop a robust pipeline of high-value manufacturing skills and to address key research challenges in manufacturing.

Successfully launched in 2019 with the Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering (SRPe) - the pan-Scottish university research pool in engineering - and with the backing of industry sponsors, our Industry Doctorate Programme now has over 30 projects underway with over 20 manufacturing and engineering businesses from across the sector.
