Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics and Statistics

First intake 2019

The Diamond Science and Technology Centre for Doctoral Training is one of the newest CDTs funded by EPSRC and industry, and has diamond-based research at the core of all activities. The Centre involves a consortium of eight UK universities and over 30 companies keen to exploit the vast potential of diamond, along with many international partners.

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 Warwick Centre of Doctoral Training (CDT) in Mathematics and Statistics is a new collaboration between the Mathematics Institute and the Department of Statistics starting in 2019. The two departments share a culture of research crossing boundaries within the mathematical sciences and reaching out to other disciplines.

Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science  

Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership

First intake 2020

 

MRC Doctoral Training Partnership in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research

First intake 2012

With the world-leading facilities and expertise in Analytical Science at Warwick and partner external facilities (e.g., Diamond, ILL, ISIS) at their disposal, our students will graduate with a unique combination of skills in exploiting synergies between different experimental methods, e.g., diffraction, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, microscopy and NMR, and in harnessing the power of combining data collection with experimental design, statistical analysis and simulation.

The MIBTP is a BBSRC (Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council)-funded Doctoral Training Partnership between Warwick, the University of Birmingham and the University of Leicester. MIBTP has an ambitious vision to deliver innovative, world-class research across the Life Sciences to boost the growing Bioeconomy in the Midlands and across the UK.

The Medical Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership (MRC DTP) in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research is an international cross-institutional endeavour creating future scientific leaders trained in quantitative and interdisciplinary skills. The programme focuses on addressing important biomedical questions in the key areas of Molecular and Cellular Dynamics, Molecular Microbiology, Antimicrobial Resistance, Biomedical Engineering and Artificial Intelligence for Data Science with translational applications in collaboration with both NHS partners and industry.

OxWaSP - The Oxford Warwick Statistics Programme

Last intake 2018

 

Mathematics and Statistics Doctoral Training Centre (MASDOC)

Last intake 2018

 

Bridges Programme

Last intake 2017

The Oxford-Warwick Centre is dedicated to providing the organisation, environment and personnel needed to develop the future industrial and academic research leaders in statistics for modern day science, engineering and commerce, all exemplified by 'big data.'

MASDOC is one of the first Centres for Doctoral Training dedicated to mathematical sciences, and is run jointly between the Departments of Mathematics and Statistics.The MASDOC doctoral training programme has a broad scope, but is rooted in four themes: analysis, computation and numerical analysis, probability, and statistics.

The Bridges CDT aims to provide PhD students with deep knowledge of contemporary research questions in the social sciences, and rigorous training in the mathematical and computational approaches needed to answer them.

Last intake 2016

  Last intake 2018
With the world-leading facilities and expertise at Warwick at their disposal, our students will graduate with a unique combination of skills in exploiting synergies between different experimental methods and in harnessing the power of combining data collection with experimental design, statistical analysis, modelling, and simulation.   Established in 2011, Warwick's ESRC DTC covered 20 pathway subject areas across the social sciences, providing financial and research support to a number of students looking to improve their skills and knowledge through postgraduate study.   To enable future cities to deliver services effectively, efficiently and sustainably, while keeping their citizens safe, healthy, prosperous, and well informed, requires a step-change in knowledge and understanding. WISC focuses on the means to gather city-scale data, and the apparatus to transform this data into knowledge, capitalising on emerging developments in big data and in interdisciplinary solutions to the world’s urban challenges.
