Start your engineering career by joining our world-leading centre with six top UK universities, 49 international companies and three cutting-edge research themes

The FIND-CDT is a leading international centre of excellence that provides doctoral training in sensing, imaging and analysis for the vital field of Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE).

We bring universities and industrial companies together to deliver research projects that makes a difference. EDF, Airbus and E.ON are just a few of the companies our students have worked with to create real impact.

Within eight years all the major end-users of NDE will have at least one of our doctoral graduates progressing to senior research and technical roles. These graduates will be instrumental in making the UK industry a world leader in the integration of NDE into the anticipated fourth industrial revolution.
