The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Propulsion and Power is currently recruiting up to 18 postgraduate students to start in October 2022.
Our CDT is an exciting partnership that brings together internationally-recognised universities and global industry partners to create a unique consortium for aerothermal training and research.
The training programme involves the Whittle Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, the Osney Laboratory at the University of Oxford and the Aeronautical and Automotive Engineering Department at Loughborough University.
These three universities have been specifically chosen because of their track record of research excellence in turbomachinery aerodynamics (Cambridge), heat transfer (Oxford) and combustor aerodynamics (Loughborough).
The CDT has further assembled a group of companies in complementary sectors; Rolls-Royce, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Siemens UK and Dyson.
The CDT in Future Propulsion and Power follows a "1+3" model. In year one, all students study for MRes degree in Future Propulsion and Power at the University of Cambridge. However, while students are based in Cambridge, the MRes also makes full use of the unique partnership between academia and industry that is at the heart of the CDT.
The training delivered during the MRes provides a springboard to the PhD phase in years two-to-four, where students undertake industrially-focussed PhD projects at one of the three partner universities. Each university provides an internationally recognised environment for propulsion and power research, but CDT students also benefit from the network of experts, and the portfolio of skills, that they have built up during the MRes phase.
