My Dissertation focussed on Nitrogen diffusion treatments of Manganese Steels. I studied material science and material engineering at the University of Sheffield, during the final year of this I started to look at my future prospects, I knew that I wanted to do a PHD but I wasn’t sure if the individual working situation would be suit me. But when I looked into the CDT I found that the cohort structure would give me the freedom to work but also the company of like-minded people. 


Coming from a material science back ground the tribology CDT course really interested me as it covers and applies much of what I learned in my undergraduate course.
