EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics

The CDT in Applied Photonics meets industry's need for highly skilled engineers in the photonics and electronics interface.  

Established in 2001, we are the UK's longest running centre of doctoral training in photonics comprising 100 academic research groups in five universities, Heriot-Watt, Dundee, Glasgow, St Andrews and Strathclyde, working with more than 35 companies to apply photonics to deliver solutions to critical scientific and engineering problems.

Each of our collaborations is built around an EngD or PhD student, providing them with masters-level technical and business qualifications, along with an industrially-connected doctoral research project.

We welcome project proposals from any company with a research-base in the UK and applications from potential students for EngD and PhD positions (nationality and residency eligibility criteria apply).
