The CDT is looking to recruit students with a first class or high upper second class degree in engineering and the physcial, natural and biological sciences.  Applicants will be judged on their enthusiasm and academic quality, their existing skills and their potential for contributing to the CDT.  The CDT aims to foster considerable diversity — indeed we think this variety is an important asset. A first year of carefully organised taught training is designed to allow this diverse intake to learn from and support each other while they are taught to develop the key skills and knowledge that will allow them to pursue subsequent research.

Thinking about studying for a PhD?

If you have decided you would like to apply for one of our PhD projects or if you are thinking about applying but are not sure if you have the right background the best way to proceed is to contact the project supervisor.  The email and telephone number of each supervisor is listed alongside the projects HERE.  Supervisors will be happy to talk through the project with you and answer any queries you have about the research project and which skills they are looking for.  It also gives you a chance to introduce yourself to your potential supervisor and explain the motivations you have for studying a PhD and why you have chosen this project in particular.
