Come along to our CDT Open Day. Meet the Directors and current students, learn more about the Centres for Doctoral Training programmes, and have the opportunity to get your questions answered.

The EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training bring together diverse areas of expertise in order to train researchers to address engineering and science related problems. They draw on world class and internationally recognised research from a range of disciplines and provide students with the knowledge and skills through which to address today’s global issues and prepare them for future challenges.

The University hosts the following integrated MSc/PhD programmes, each have up to 10 fully funded places available for September 2018 entry and will be in attendance at the Open Day:

  • Bioenergy
  • Complex Particulate Products and Processes
  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Integrated Tribology
  • Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine – Innovation in Medical & Biological Engineering

CDT students are funded for 4 years and work in a supportive, cohort environment, creating and developing relationships between teams in Universities and forging lasting links with industry. A number of the CDTs at Leeds have a taught component to the programme which is designed to support a range of academic backgrounds in building a strong foundation in their field before choosing a PhD project.

Students’ PhD research is conducted with the support of outstanding supervisors from across the University, alongside the continuation of professional development activities. These include an industrial or academic placement; workshops; courses; seminars; career training, and much more.

Book your place to attend via Eventbrite and we will be in contact with more information.

More information about the CDT's is available on the Discover Leeds pages.
