Training to address critical challenges

Over 40 new PhD students will begin work on critical engineering and scientific challenges this term as they join one of four new Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), which have been established with funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The four CDTs – which will take around 200 students over the next five years – are Bioenergy, Complex Particulate Products and Processes, Fluid Dynamics, and Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.

“It’s exciting to have these new CDTs on campus, as each of them will be considering the latest cutting-edge research,” explains Professor Peter Jimack, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering. “The PhD students will be working with our academics and industry partners to address critical challenges in current research and recognised EPSRC priority areas.”
