Welcome iT-CDT Students 2016

After a very busy summer with our iT-CDT students attending a number of conferences and workshops, we are finally pleased to officially welcome our newest members to the iT-CDT Community.


Cohort 3 joined the team in September 2016 and are settling into PhD life with the help and support of our other Centre Students.

Heather and Will presenting their work

Induction week this year included a one-day student conference with special guest speakers from Rolls-Royce and NPL, who highlighted the importance of Tribology in Industry. Our current students also presented A workshop on 'Being a Researcher' in the centre and current mini-project work they've undertaken.

We also squeezed in a GoApe experience in which we all survived the high tree climbs and zip wires and where even the centre manager got through it broken-bone free!

Finally we finished the week off with a BBQ in the sun and managed to identify the most competitive members of the team through a 'friendly' game of lawn croquet!

Want to find out more about what our students have been up to.......? Get in touch with Centre Manager Kimberley Matthews-Hyde and meet our new students to find out what life as a PhD student is really like and the exciting opportunities we have available for you.

We look forward to anther exciting year in the iT-CDT.
