PhD Programme Content

Having developed your research agenda in the first year, you will spend the remaining three years working on your PhD project, guided by appropriate supervisory teams. Many projects have direct industrial involvement with joint supervision provided by an industrial collaborator. Regular industry visits will provide experience working within the research team of the industrial partner.

Supporting your PhD

Below you can find an outline of the key areas of training throughout your PhD:

It is important that you continue to develop your core skills and knowledge. Attendance at APTS and NATCOR courses as well as STOR-i Workshops and STOR-i Masterclasses, are positive skill builders.

You will address issues of impact including the production of accessible software for new STOR methods, building research networks, successful knowledge transfer and relevance to society. This will have a strong input from industrial and academic collaborators.

You will look at issues in running successful research projects such as collaborative projects with scientific or industrial partners. There will also be a programme of speakers from industry, academia and public life speaking on leadership.
