Industry sponsors

Engineering doctorate (EngD) research is directly related to the needs of UK business through the detailed involvement of over 450 industry sponsors. These range from specialist small- to medium-sized businesses (SMEs) through to the UK offices of multi-national firms.

For these sponsors, genuine business benefits have been delivered, including the development of new products, materials and services, which have become profitable ventures (read our case studies and see what current sponsors say).

Strong relationships between companies and academic institutions can also help underline an organisation's corporate social responsibility. Investing in EngD programmes shows a commitment to the future, stimulating the expansion of UK plc's intellectual capacity, and helping businesses contribute to a more sustainable economy.
