Course summary

Gain interdisciplinary training on CDT to Advance the Deployment of Future Mobility Technologies EngD/PhD. A collaboration with two of Warwick's internationally renowned departments, School of Engineering and Warwick Manufacturing Group. This programme has been expertly designed to develop multidisciplinary future research leaders.

Course Overview

The university will deliver interdisciplinary training with students selecting modules from the Engineering and Manufacturing MSc programmes as well as bespoke modules for each stream. All students will also study modules on research skills. business, ethics, social responsibility and policy.

The programme is structured to deliver cohort-based training, offering significant student benefits by promoting cross-disciplinary interactions and creating a stimulating and supportive network. This is achieved by year one entrants being based at Warwick, establishing a “sense of cohort and shared research mission”. During the four-year programme, each graduate will spend extended periods working with their chosen industrial partner on real world industrial research.

The programme is designed to exploit the first-class research expertise and facilities of the School of Engineering and WMG, with extensive direct industrial input and training delivery embedded throughout.

For both streams industrial sponsors and relevant external partners will deliver specific training and illustrative lectures throughout the programme.
