Applications are invited from UK/EU students with, or expecting to obtain, a first or upper second class honours degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics or similar numerate discipline to join the CDT in Communications Engineering 4-year PhD programme.
The Centre works closely with over 25 companies to undertake cutting-edge applied and theoretical research, combined with bespoke training in the field of communications to train the next generation of communications engineers to work in industry or academia. The PhD programme is suitable both for recent graduates as well as those with significant industrial experience wishing to access new career paths in research.
A wide range of PhD topics are proposed and developed collaboratively by industrial member companies and the academic team and are selected by students towards the end of the first year. During the first year students undertake a 3-month individual research project which prepares them for their full PhD project. At the end of the first year students are integrated into specialist research teams with world-leading research profiles and facilities in areas such as wireless communications, networks, RF technologies, vehicular connectivity, mathematics, video and communications and work collaborate with their industrial mentors.
Studentships are primarily available to UK nationals & EU citizens resident in the UK for the previous 3 years. A limited number of studentships are available to EU applicants. Those in possession of their own funding (e.g. via a non-EU government scholarship) are also welcome to apply for a place of study.
