Skills-163437611Postgraduate Training & Research

Working to increase the availability and mobility of researchers between universities and industry, we aim to enhance the career development of new engineers while helping established companies innovate in their own sector. In 2017-18, CENSIS was able to support the following programmes:

MSc Sensor and Imaging Systems

Delivered by the University of Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow, the programme is designed to appeal to graduates seeking to develop SIS skills that can be used in a range of end applications. Read the blog post from an MSc graduate about his experiences of the MSc in SIS.

MSc Internet of Things

Delivered by the University of the West of Scotland.

MSc Advanced Security and Digital Forensics

A full-time, on campus programme delivered by Edinburgh Napier University.

EngD Sensor and Imaging Systems

This new degree is currently offered by the universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt and Strathclyde. A cost-effective conduit for enhanced industry and university collaboration, EngD is emphasised by industry interaction. Research Engineers, as EngD students are known, have at least one company sponsor, and spend the majority of their time on site with their industry sponsor.


CENSIS also supports a small number of PhD studentships, normally via the EPSRC CDT in Integrative Sensing and Measurement, where businesses can take the lead in arranging projects with an academic partner.
