We have welcomed 12 new CDT Bioenergy students from a range of different academic backgrounds, including Mechanical Engineering, Environmental Science, Physics and Systems Engineering.
A residential induction was held at Chevin Country Park Hotel in Otley, where academics and new students enjoyed a networking dinner followed by a full-day induction event.
This was a great opportunity for the students to meet each other and the academics they will be working with. The induction day involved team building sessions, numerous presentations on research projects, group projects and discussions on research collaborations.
The Bioenergy students were given a list of potential PhD projects which they are already starting to think about. With a range of backgrounds, it is clear that their interests span across all four Bioenergy research themes.
