The DST Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) produces students with a skill set that matches the interdisciplinary nature of research required to establish the UK as a front runner in the development and exploitation of emerging DST. With this would come significant opportunity to create new UK businesses and enhance existing ones, driving growth and innovation and creating “high-tech” jobs.


Our National Centre of Excellence for graduate training in Diamond Science and Technology (DST) has diamond-based research at the core of all activities. The Centre involves a collaboration between nine UK universities and over thirty companies, keen to exploit the vast potential of diamond.
