Minister supportive of engineering doctorates

(2 May 2014) - The Minister for Universities and Science, the Rt Hon Mr David Willetts MP has responded positively to the Association of Engineering Doctorates (AEngD) when it recently shared its concern about funding for EngD centres. Mr Willetts said: "The Government recognises that the Engineering Doctorate (EngD) qualification is an important and distinctive part of the UK’s postgraduate landscape. I have written to the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to ask them to continue to work with the Association of Engineering Doctorates (AEngD) to consider the EngD landscape as part of EPSRC’s wider commitments in engineering doctoral training. I would also encourage the Association to continue making its case to the universities, industry and other engineering organisations, to ensure the UK has sufficient supply of engineers with the diverse skills needed to tackle today’s global challenges."
