The second student cohort has arrived

last modified Oct 08, 2015 02:29 PM
The second cohort of Sensor CDT students has arrived at the beginning of October to embark on their four year MRes + PhD programme with us.

A new cohort of 15 Sensor CDT students from the UK, EU and overseas has just started their MRes part of the CDT programme. They all have a common interest in sensing and will contribute their experiences and knowledge from a diverse background of undergraduate degrees in

  • physics,
  • bioengineering,
  • computer science,
  • biochemistry,
  • electrical engineering,
  • nano technology,
  • neuroscience.

While the majority of the new students still have a few months to decide on their PhD project, some students are already working towards their projects with our industrial partners, e.g. MedImmune, Cambridge Display Technology and Alphasense.

It will be an exciting time ahead for them, as they learn about different aspects of sensing, trying out new ways of research and finding out what they enjoy most in the area of sensing.
