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.

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.
