Engineering Doctorate in X-Ray Computed Tomography

Calibration of X-ray Computed Tomography X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT) is increasingly being used for dimensional measurement in industry. The method is a potential measurement solution for the sophisticated components found in, for example, modern aero and automotive engines. In particular, XCT allows the measurement of both external and internal structures.

The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is leading a nationwide integrated project team to address the challenge of calibration for XCT, so that measurements made on the systems are traceable back to national standards. We are recruiting for an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) student to work as part of the project team, which includes the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Loughborough University, NPL, Nikon Metrology and the University of Southampton.

Photon-component Interactions – Manufacturing Technology Centre, Loughborough University

The project looks at the interaction of the X-ray beam with components of complex geometries, with the aim of developing an appropriate calibration approach. You will be supervised by Loughborough University. You will spend the majority of your time working at The Manufacturing Technology Centre (www.the-mtc.org), will have
the opportunity to work at NPL and will be enrolled on the Manufacturing Technology 4 year EngD programme.

Opportunities to Train as a Secondary Teacher at Keele University

Those considering Secondary teacher training can apply through the Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR) for a place on a PGCE as has been the case for many years (www.gttr.ac.uk).  An alternative route for this September is called school Direct.  Training numbers have been allocated to schools and the schools are required to work with providers such as Keele.  Applications to this route are made via the Department for Education’s (DfE) website (www.education.gov.uk/teachschooldirect). 

Keele University works with schools across Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.  The teacher training portfolio offered at Keele has some overlap with PGCE subjects at Loughborough (Science and Mathematics) but there are a number of curriculum areas where Keele is the only Higher Education provider in this part of the Midlands. The programme undertaken by students/trainees on School Direct, with Keele, is more or less identical to the ‘standard’ programme and all successful students are awarded a PGCE.
