What is an industrial CASE PhD?
Industrial CASE PhDs are projects run in collaboration with an industrial partner. The student applies to a specified project which has been created between an academic and industry partner. CASE PhDs include at the least the equivalent of a 3 month placement spent with the industry partner and offer a unique chance to work within industry on projects that are likely to have rapid impact, provide an experience of at least two distinct research cultures, and access to a wider than usual range of technology, facilities and expertise.
