Our vision is the creation of a new generation of UK specialists driving the electric revolution in the transport sector.
We aim to create a new school of thinking amongst engineers and scientists, capable of leading the transformation from fossil fuel transport to sustainable and environmentally-friendly electric transport.
A collaboration between two of the UK's largest and most forward-thinking research groups in electric propulsion: the Electrical Power Group at Newcastle University and the Power Electronics, Machines and Control Research Group at the University of Nottingham.
The CDT is supported by over 30 industrial and network partners to deliver unprecedented high-quality research and comprehensive training.
We have developed a radical new training programme that will equip our students with a new school of thinking for solving problems to ensure maximum research impact.
Highlights of the training programme include:
Fusion-Training-Units - a revolutionary new training method combining technical knowledge with professional skills;
Supervisor-on-Demand scheme - students will get support from their main academic and industrial supervisor and also from a pool of experts throughout training and research;
A large choice of taught modules and laboratories - subjects in engineering, science, business tailored to students' needs.
UK students can make an application to either Newcastle University or University of Nottingham.
Applicants should have at least a 2:1 Bachelor level degree in an engineering or science discipline.
These awards are available to UK and International students. All students will receive the stipend set by EPSRC and the current rate is £15,609 per annum. All students will also receive a budget for travel and consumables associated to their project.
