We would like to introduce you to the key people involved in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Composites for Innovation and Science.
Operational duties are undertaken by the CDT Director, working with a Management Committee. This Committee includes the Research and Teaching Co-ordinators, Project Manager, dedicated CDT Lecturers, CDT Manager, Postgraduate Student Administrator and elected Student Representatives.
Our students are all academically gifted graduates from a wide range of academic disciplines (e.g. aerospace engineering, biochemistry, chemistry, civil engineering, materials science, mathematics, mechanical engineering, physics and textiles engineering). The student body is divided into cohorts of between 10 and 13 students.
Our performance, quality and strategic direction are reviewed annually through meetings of our external Advisory Board, which comprises key stakeholders including external academics and industry partners. Our Advisory Board make a valuable contribution to the continuing development of the CDT and our students.
Project supervisors are drawn from within ACCIS, and other collaborating departments within the University, as well as collaborators from other universities and our industrial partners.
