Integrated MRes and PhD
The Centre for Doctoral Training programme (CDT) is an alternative route to a PhD, designed as a four-year programme of study (1 year MRes followed by 3 year PhD). It provides structured entry into research for applicants with an undergraduate degree or equivalent. CDTs are funded by EPSRC, and are open to UK and EU students.
CDT programmes are more than a standard PhD. There is considerable emphasis on multidisciplinary and transferrable skills, delivered through a range of activities beyond a traditional individual PhD research project, and the MRes year is an integral part of the programme.
Mirroring the increasingly collaborative nature of modern engineering and science, CDTs bring together experts from across a broad spectrum, often across disciplines and other research institutions.
Mres and PhD
The focus is High Performance Embedded and Distributed Systems. This has huge breadth, offering research opportunities ranging from implantable smart sensors to secure cloud service providers, and all points in between. We tackle the technologies and underlying theory that provide the keys to open up new applications, new products, new industries, new businesses, and new solutions to the problems of society.
Future power networks and smart grids
The University of Strathclyde and Imperial College have combined their expertise and world-class facilities to establish this Centre.
The Centre delivers a unique training and research programme, designed to produce highly-skilled engineers who’ll help realise the future low carbon smart grid. It blends leading-edge information and communications technology solutions with radical new power systems, along with market mechanisms to support the increasing roll-out of renewable energy and the electrification of transportation and heating.
