A Postgraduate Programme in the UK and now International

Alongside lead academic partner Brunel University London, BP and TWI, LRF is a founding partner of NSIRC, which began to take on PhD and Master students in 2012, serving a global need from industry for industrial research, and a call from the UK Government to training more graduates.

The topics and dissertations of all NSIRC students reflect real world safety challenges that are being faced by global industries including aerospace, renewables and energy, transport, shipping and many more. All of which are connected to structural integrity and risk assessment fields.

In June 2022, TWI, NSIRC and Parahyangan Catholic University (UNPAR) in Indonesia, signed an MoU for the establishment of NSIRC International, which will see NSIRC students based partially at the university as well as TWI Indonesia (or a TWI Industrial Member office).
