The Centre for Doctoral Training to Advance the Deployment of Future Mobility Technologies (CDT FMT)

intelligent vehicle

Mobility systems are rapidly evolving, driven by technological advances, social trends and economic models. Both public and private agencies have a pivotal role to play in shaping these changes and this new cohort focused centre, with direct industrial involvement, responds to these emerging sectorial skills needs.

The future of mobility is changing – get on board!

The Centre for Doctoral Training to Advance the Deployment of Future Mobility Technologies (CDT FMT) will see the School of Engineering and WMG jointly train cohorts of 10 students who will choose research across two streams: Wide Bandgap Power Electronics (WBG PE) and Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) whilst working closely with multiple leading companies and organisations.

The CDT will develop multidisciplinary future research leaders with the creativity, skills and in-depth knowledge to transform the mobility of people and goods for the benefit of UK society and industry in an electrically intensive energy future.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems (HetSys CDT)


HetSys is an new EPSRC-supported Centre for Doctoral Training. It is recruiting enthusiastic students from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems.

By developing these skills HetSys trains people to challenge current state-of-the-art in computational modelling of heterogeneous, ‘real world’ systems across a range of research themes such as nanoscale devices, new catalysts, superalloys, smart fluids, laser-plasma interactions, functional composites etc.

HETSYS will transform this landscape by being the first CDT explicitly targeting the modelling of heterogeneous systems required by industry and academia, with models implemented in robust and reusable software that produces probabilistic error bars on all outputs using uncertainty quantification (UQ). The CDT will see the Departments of Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, WBS and WMG jointly train students in integration of a diverse range of modelling methods, in uncertainty quantification,and in sustainable software development. Thus, the CDT students will be equipped with a broad skillset, and will be ready to move into a range of careers in science and engineering.

The HetSys CDT offers a range of projects suitable for students with mathematical and scientific academic backgrounds.
