Sensors are ubiquitous and impact on everybody’s life. Their use has become so natural to us that we hardly notice the sophisticated science and technology that underpins their operation. The CDT for Sensor Technologies will produce future champions of sensor innovation, by delivering a cross-disciplinary training programme to the brightest PhD students and harnessing Cambridge’s world leading research infrastructure and expertise in sensor research.
The Sensor CDT is a four year PhD programme (1+3 model) bringing together students with backgrounds in the natural sciences, engineering disciplines, computer science and medicine. Hear about the experiences of some of the MRes students from the second cohort.
Up to ten fully funded studentships are available for eligible students from the UK and the EU. Overseas students cannot be funded by the CDT but may apply to funding schemes administered by Cambridge University.
The CDT is supported by a consortium of leading industrial partners. In addition to supporting studentships and secondments, the industry consortium plays an active role in delivery of the training programme of the CDT.
