The Manchester Centre for Doctoral Training in Computer Science proposes a new model of PhD training which combines the deep technical research study associated with the UK PhD with training and practical experience in creativity and innovation and scientific evaluation, and gives students experiences practicing their research skills by working with users from outside academia.
It is the first and currently only EPSRC-funded CDT in core computer science.
Our goal is to train the complete researcher and to produce doctoral scientists who are flexible and ready to innovate on new problems as well as being thoroughly trained in the research methods of their PhD research project.
By the end of the programme not only will you have received high quality training on a specific research topic, you will have also developed invaluable skills and experience across research boundaries and of addressing the problems of users outside academia, such as in industry and the community.
The programme consists of an initial ‘foundation period’ of six months of taught components, followed by a 3.5 year period of focused PhD level research, carried out under the supervision of a PhD supervisor or team of supervisors.
