The first cohort of 10 Sensor CDT students has arrived this week.

The first cohort of ten students have embarked on the Sensor CDT course this week. The students, with undergraduate degrees in physics, engineering, biochemistry and biology, have been selected out of a large competitive field of applicants. The three women and seven men come from universities in the UK, Europe and the Far East. The Sensor CDT will offer them a well rounded postgraduate education, providing in-depth technical knowledge, entrepreneurial and business skills and plenty of opportunities to work in teams as well as individually. Mentoring and placements offered by the Sensor CDT's industrial partners will support their research and learning.

From left to right the students are:

Back row: Philip Mair, James Manton, Josie Hughes, Richard Hall, Tiesheng Wang, Oliver Bonner

Front row: Geraldine Baekelandt, Isabella Miele, Omar Ajad, Vitaly Levdik
