The 4-year PhD programme consistes of a taught first year with some research components, followed by three years of full time research. The taught component 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.
NGCM's last cohort has started the program in 2018 and new applications can no longer be considered. If you are still interested in Next Generation Computational Modelling have a look at other PhD opportunities here.
