CDT Open Day – 9 November 2016
Whether you've already applied or plan to apply to one of the EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training offered by the University of Leeds come along to our CDT Open Day. Meet the CDT 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 (CDT) 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 of Leeds hosts the following integrated MSc/PhD programmes, each have up to 10 fully funded places available for September 2017 entry and will be in attendance at the Open Day:
- Complex Particulate Products & Processes
- Fluid Dynamics
- Integrated Tribology
- Nuclear Fission – Next Generation Nuclear
- 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.
