The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Distributed Algorithms (CDT) at the University of Liverpool will train a cohort of 60 students to have the skills and experience that enables them to solve pressing industrial problems by co-defining “where” and “how” future algorithms will be distributed across tomorrows hardware. By fulfilling this critical training need, the CDT will enable the UK to take the lead in Distributed Algorithms.
The CDT will work with each student to define the training that aligns with their needs and the specific demands of the studentship. Our training provision will include the training needs associated with both the "Future Computing Systems" and "Towards a Data-Driven Future" priority areas. We will use guest lectures from, for example, IBM and UC Berkeley to ensure we maximise our graduates' ability to thrive and to become tomorrow's leaders in Distributed Algorithms.

“Being a CDT student gives me the opportunity to do my PhD as part of a cohort which means that I learn not only to accomplish things on my own but also I learn the value of being a member of a team.” Theofilos Triommatis, CDT student co-sponsored by MBDA
“The CDT allows me to develop my skills, and to collaborate with market-leading industries to innovate in real-world scenarios.” Marco Fontana, CDT student fully funded by Sintela
