NSIRC Impact Review
New for 2020, the National Structural Integrity Research Centre at TWI in Cambridge, has officially released it's Impact Review 2020.
The compact review, charts NSIRC's founding in 2012 to the present day and includes case studies from former students who have gone on to achieve excellence in academia and industry.
Founded in 2012 after a call from government for academia led by industrial need, TWI, bp and Lloyd's Register Foundation (LRF) partnered to create a centre for postgraduate courses that could train a future generation of highly-skilled engineers, capable for rapidly adapting to the latest industrial and environmental challenges.
Engineering Masters courses in Cambridge
From the site at TWI in Cambridge, NSIRC offers four Masters courses. Each postgraduate degree is orientated towards engineering.
Oil Gas and Structural Integrity are run by Brunel University London, the lead academic partner of NSIRC, while Leadership and Management is supported and awarded by Aston University, Birmingham, and the Executive MBA is with De Montfort University, Leicester. All courses are based in Cambridge or at least have an element that takes place onsite at NSIRC.
Industrial doctorate programme
The PhD student programme at NSIRC provides high-level academia with a call for research from the industrial partners of TWI and our sponsors.
PhD topics are based upon a fundamental need for research or to build upon the further research projects of previous NSIRC students.
Each one of high industrial impact, a valve increasing used by universities and governing bodies to examine the influence and reach of a many high-level academic institutions.
Postgraduate education within an industrial environment has the added benefit of training students with industry experience in everyday business practices alongside their academic research. The end result is that even before graduating, students are familial with meetings, project management, budgets and working 9 to 5, providing a seamless transition from PhD to industry.
Since it's founding, NSIRC students have conducted over 800 years of PhD level research, have a completion rate of over 90% and all transition into industry within one year of graduation,
Here are just a few of centres were NSIRC alumni have gone on to get a job in industry or academia:
- Ford Motor Company
- GE Renewable Energy
- Brunel University
