Fully funded Doctorates in Water Science and Engineering

Safeguard the lives and livelihoods of billions of people

28 fully funded PhD and EngD places in Water Science and Engineering starting September 2017.

A new generation of science and engineering professionals is needed to deliver the fundamental scientific understandings that will underpin more sustainable and resilient water services. Innovative research in areas such as emerging pollutants, informatics, low-energy processes, optimization, and resource recovery and reuse will shape the future of society's relationship with water as both a natural resource and a utility service.

This work is going on in eight of the UK's leading research universities through the Water Informatics: Science and Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training and the STREAM Industrial Doctorate Centre for the Water Sector . The universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Cranfield, Exeter, Imperial, Newcastle and Sheffield have brought together their individual academic excellence in water science and engineering to deliver two collaborative doctoral programmes that foster new levels of innovation in research.

Our training and research programmes reflect a strong professional development ethos, provide a research experience which combines academic rigour with real world problem solving, and ensure that you have the opportunities to progress your career in the global water sector.

Both centres are now welcoming enquiries for new cohorts starting in September 2017 with opportunities available across a wide range of topics and disciplines.
