Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering


In-depth interviews with some of our current PhD students

Hear from final year PhD students from the 2012 and 2013 cohorts discussing topics such as how they choose their PhD topic, benefits of doing the CDT, studying in Cambridge, and much more!
