What is the AEngD?

The AEngD is a community of Engineering Doctorate providers, researchers, sponsors, EngD alumni and other stakeholders in the EngD 'brand'.

The Association of Engineering Doctorates is a community engaged in research in engineering and related disciplines. It encourages high calibre research engineers (REs) to undertake EngD programmes at EngD centres (formerly industrial doctorate centres, IDCs; from 2014, centres for doctoral training, CDTs), funded by EPSRC with backing from UK industry sponsors, many of them companies at the leading edge of innovative thinking and practice.

It was established in 2010 and formally launched in 2012 to:

EngD programmes provide a challenging, multi-disciplinary and academically rigorous education and training experience, leading to a recognised post-graduate research qualification - equal to a PhD.

Ultimately, the EngD is the doctorate for professional engineers who want a career in industry.
