Congratulations on obtaining an offer of funding to support your studies in the Centre for Doctoral Training: To Advance the Deployment of Future Mobility Studies (CDT FMT).
STREAM 1: Wide Bandgap Power Electronics. You will be based in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick.
STREAM 2: Connected and Autonomous Vehicles. You will be based in WMG at the University of Warwick.
Please read the terms and conditions of our offer carefully before accepting our offer.
We very much hope you choose to accept your offer.
1.1 - Recipients of a scholarship from the CDT FMT must abide at all times with the University rules and regulations, as set out in the University Calendar, available online at http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/gov/calendar/Link opens in a new window.
1.2 - The offer of the award is made on the understanding that applicants are currently enrolled or will be enrolled with the University as specified in their offer for admission, and will then subsequently re-enrol annually. If an applicant has been made a conditional offer for doctoral study and has conditions still outstanding at the time of enrolment, then enrolment will be provisional until the conditions needed for full enrolment have been met. Provisional enrolment will enable the student to receive the award. However, if the conditions of admission are not satisfied within the first term of study the student will be liable to repay the amount awarded in full, on-demand and without deduction. Acceptance of the terms and conditions of this award shall be taken as acceptance of the student’s liability to repay in such circumstances.
1.3 - Accommodation fees are not directly covered by this award.
1.4 - If you are in receipt of a maintenance award, payments will be made on a monthly basis unless otherwise stated. The first payment will be made on the first day of the month in which the student is due to start their course or three to four days following enrolment, whichever is later. Payments will only commence once Student Finance has received the student’s UK bank details. Note: Your award letter will state explicitly if a maintenance award is included.
1.5 - Maintenance payments will only be made from the University to a student’s UK bank account.
1.5a - Any additional payments connected with an industrial partner will usually require a separate contract, the terms and conditions will be stated on said contract.
1.6 - Requests for temporary withdrawal will only be considered on the grounds set out in University Regulation 36. Requests for temporary withdrawal should be made in accordance with normal procedure and the payment of the award is normally suspended during the award holder's period of temporary withdrawal. The exception is in the case of requests for temporary withdrawal for maternity leave, for which, if approved, the University will pay maintenance in line with statutory maternity provision.
1.7 - Should an award-holder wish to withdraw permanently, he/she must notify their department immediately in writing. Any maintenance and fee awards payable will be terminated at the date of withdrawal. Any payments made to an award-holder to cover a period of study after the date of permanent withdrawal will need to be repaid.
1.8 - This award is not transferrable and must be activated within one calendar month of the start date stated on the award.
1.9 - Specific expectations of the CDT FMT programme include:
- Attend a number of induction programme events;
- Attend a number of supporting lectures and seminars;
- Attend a number of workshops associated with the CDT;
- Fully contribute to the development of, and participate in, the annual CDT conference;
- Work as a cohort with other members of the CDT;
- Attend a number of foundation training modules;
- Work with outside partners as and when required;
- Utilise the office space you are provided with to ensure that you interact with other cohort members within the CDT.
Students enter one of two streams (Wide Bandgap Power Electronics or Connected and Autonomous Vehicles) for specialised training to support their research discipline.
During year 1 you will be expected to: -
- Complete cohort project module (both streams).
- Attend cohort training in methods and practice in future mobility technologies (both streams).
- Attend lectures from practitioners on future mobility technologies (both streams).
- Attend training in research methods and applied project work with industry professionals (both streams).
- Complete taught modules related to your chosen stream (see course structureLink opens in a new window).
- Stream 1 only: Successful completion of 6 taught modules and the cohort project module will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma in Wide Bandgap Power Electronics for those registered for the EngD in Wide Bandgap Power Electronics.
You will only move to Years 2-4 based on satisfactory progress in the first year.
EngD/PhD research projects will involve industrial partners. All students will graduate at the end of the four-year programme with an EngD/PhD in Future Mobility Technologies (or equivalent) subject to the requisite progress and submissions.
Stream 1 only: You will also be registered for the Postgraduate Certificate in Transferable Skills in Science, which you will undertake during years 2-4.
