Programme Overview

Key Features of the training element of the CDT programme

  • Cohort based training and networking to foster: communication, synergy and peer-to-peer learning between CDT PhD students.  All researchers undertake 18 weeks of taught training over the life of their project. 12 of these are from a set list of modules and will be taken as a cohort in residential weeks.
  • Pilot plant week, residential weeks, Summer Camps and CIM networking events form part of the formal cohort training.
  • Tailored rotation projects can be designed to allow CDT PhD students to gain solid understanding and confident experience in two collaborating disciplines prior to undertaking the final research project
  • Close alignment with the EPSRC CIM to increase the student role in knowledge transfer to industry and increase their understanding of pathways to impact on society and the economy.
