Course Information


The CDT-UP offers a four-year programme, with a one-year taught Masters (MRes) course taught at Cambridge or Cranfield followed, assuming a suitable level of attainment in the Masters, by a three-year PhD research programme collaborating with a project partner, at Cambridge, Cranfield, or another UK university through the National Centre Programme.

During their PhD programme, students will continue to be supported by the CDT. They will maintain participation in CDT industrial visits, seminars, and the annual research conferences.

The CDT-UP is run in collaboration with the University of Cambridge and Cranfield University, with cross centre teaching during the MRes year. Teaching is through a variety of media, combining to provide a rich and varied learning experience for CDT-UP graduates. Students will experience lectures, small group teaching, student-led and tutor-led seminars, industrial visits, short block courses, and individual research.
