EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future

Department A-Z

Dip into the world of sensing

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.
