Reference Code: STREAM
The STREAM programme is delivered by a consortium of five universities, all of which are centres of excellence in water science and engineering, together with project sponsors from the water industry.
The programme is co-ordinated by Cranfield University and includes Imperial College London and the universities of Newcastle, Sheffield and Exeter.
The STREAM programme enables talented researchers to develop their skills and careers, while obtaining an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) degree. Further information about the STREAM EngD can be found on the Newcastle University website.
STREAM offers a number of funded projects each year and Newcastle University is delighted to host five of these STREAM EngD Studentships for the 2012/13 academic year. The scope and topic of these projects vary and will appeal to applicants from a range of subject backgrounds and research interests.
STREAM studentships are sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the company affiliated with each individual research project.
STREAM EngD studentships are intended for the future leaders of the global water industry. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate that they are already high flyers and have the potential to exploit the opportunities to excel that a STREAM studentship provides. You are expected to have a first or upper second class Honours degree in a relevant scientific or engineering subject
