Welcome to the University of Southampton's Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modelling.
The £10million EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training is jointly funded by EPSRC, the University of Southampton, and its academic and industry partners
The NGCM brings together world-class simulation modelling research activities from across the University of Southampton and hosts a 4-year doctoral training programme that is the first of its kind in the UK.
Applications for September 2017 are now invited. We expect further projects to become available in December/January. Find out about the application process.
Summer Academy 2016
The next NGCM Summer Academy will run from 26-30 June 2017. Registration will start in early 2017 via this link.
Computational modelling is emerging as a "third pillar" of science and engineering alongside theory and experimentation. Computer simulations bridge between theory and experiment, generating hypotheses, forecasts and predictions about real-world systems. This reduces the number of experiments that need to be carried out in the real world and the number of design prototypes that have to be built, thereby reducing cost, encouraging innovation, optimising system design and enabling the study of systems for which experimental work is infeasible (for example due to prohibitive cost or risk of endangering lives, the environment, etc).
The NGCM PhD Programme
The 4-year PhD programme (first year similar to a taught Masters with some research components, followed by 3 years of full-time research) provides comprehensive training in state-of-the art computational modelling methodologies, including programming and software engineering for computational science and engineering, simulation methods and numerical techniques, and high performance computing; combined with additional transferable skills training.
The research component of our PhD programme will push forward and innovate computational methodology, such as exploitation of emerging parallel hardware, new multi-physics, multi-scale and multi-paradigm simulation methods, and tools and methods to apply computer simulation in an effective and reproducible way. This will happen in the context of applied real-world research problems, generally in collaboration with our diverse set of partners.
