You will be part of a supportive cohort of research students with different academic backgrounds, all focusing on different aspects of Fluid Dynamics.
During the taught aspects of your course you will receive a range of tailored seminars, lectures and practical laboratories to cover the computational, experimental and analytical aspects of Fluid Dynamics. This provides you with a strong background to the fundamentals of Fluid Dynamics, thus significantly broadening the PhD topics you can choose from. In addition you will have access to a wide range of personal development activities. These include: attending and contributing to regular seminar series, workshops, conferences and training events. Your PhD research will be supported by supervisors from at least two different participating Schools, providing you with the opportunity to take part in interdisciplinary study. You will also have the opportunity to work alongside either an international academic or industrial partner for an extended placement. Indeed, the CDT has strong industrial participation by companies such as BAE Systems, Dupont Teijin, JBA Consulting, Sandvik and Sellafield.

The major research areas of the CDT are encompassed in six cross-disciplinary themes;
Energy and Transport
Geophysical and Astrophysical Flows
Underpinning Methods for Fluid Dynamics
Fluid Dynamics is central to many organisations and the need for highly-skilled employees, with a broad and deep knowledge of fluid flow, is growing rapidly. Fluid dynamics sits at the centre of our lives. The weather we experience, the products we use, the food we eat, cars we drive, medical care we receive all depend on fluid dynamics.
The ability to measure, model and predict fluid flows is therefore critically important to the innovation of processes and products across almost all industries, and to the monitoring and prediction of environmental processes.
‘I feel that the CDT offers excellent experience in applications of academic research in both academia and industry’.Hannah Kreczak, CDT student
‘Being part of a cohort has been great, especially working alongside people from different academic backgrounds’.Rob Kelly, CDT student
The Faculties of Engineering and Mathematics & Physical Sciences have received the Athena SWAN Silver and Bronze Awards respectively in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining and developing/promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
We are able to consider flexibility in how the programme is studied for those students unable to join the programme as a full time student. Please get in touch with us if you would like to explore this.
