The importance of ICASE:

The aim of the ICASE awards, which are funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, is to provide PhD students with a first-rate, challenging research training experience, which brings mutual benefit for both the academic and partner organisations.

Steve Harris explains the importance of ICASE
We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of technology and innovation to meet our defence customer’s needs today and in the future. Collaboration with academia is a key component of our technology strategy, which is why we introduced a strategic university partnership framework with five leading UK universities – Birmingham, Cranfield, Manchester, Southampton and Strathclyde.
Through ICASE, we’re able to benefit from highly motivated PhD students undertaking cutting-edge research relevant to our own objectives and priorities and explore novel research collaboration opportunities. In return, students get to work on top quality projects with real-world application, benefiting from BAE Systems’ expertise, mentoring and facilities.
