Fellowships are awarded to selected, exceptional graduates with the potential to make an outstanding contribution to Industry for a programme of doctoral level research. They are open to company employed candidates or nominated Doctoral Centre / CASE candidates.

The Industrial Fellowship has been a fantastic opportunity. It has given me the freedom to take something that I was interested in researching and take it to the next level, whilst retaining a salary and strong tie to industry.
