Centres for Doctoral Training listed by university (pre-2013)

EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) are funded for four years and include technical and transferrable skills, as well as a research element. The Centres bring together diverse areas of expertise to train engineers and scientists with the skills, knowledge and confidence to tackle today’s evolving issues, and future challenges. They also provide a supportive and exciting environment for students, create new working cultures, build relationships between teams in universities and forge lasting links with industry.
