Equal opportunities

Diverse and inclusive environment

The Sensor CDT is committed to an environment which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity. This commitment is not limited to the student body but also includes the academic and non-academic staff at the CDT.


We specifically welcome applications from students of still under-represented groups at the Sensor CDT. All applications are evaluated on the basis of academic merit.
