Want to propose a project?

If you are a potential student and there is a specific project you would like to pursue at Imperial College London, you need to approach an Imperial academic who is willing to supervise you. They can then submit this project to the SSCP DTP during our call for projects each August.

If you are an Imperial academic, we put out a call for projects in August through our departmental co-ordinators. To find out who your co-ordinator is, please contact the Administrator - Education Eleana at
