Dr David Van Alstyne, Director
Working with the BBTC and the EngD programme just makes us much faster on our feet when we are talking to a partner. Introducing maths into our processes makes our partners look at it on a much broader commercial level almost without me saying a single thing about it.
Dr Malcolm Skingle CBE, Academic Liaison Director
We've actually snapped up a couple of the EngD students already. They have excellent problem solving skills and real hands on experience working in industry while being mentored by the academics. They will get their degrees and they will get jobs in an expanding bioprocessing biopharmaceutical industry in the UK.
Dave Lovett, Managing Director
Working with the BBTC has been great for me because I get involved with not only the EngD students working alongside us but all of the other companies that are involved with the programme.
