About NGCM

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modelling (NGCM) provided an innovative training programme for post-graduate students to:
  • be trained in state-of-the-art best practice for computational modelling
  • be exposed to industrial and real-world problems
  • become cross-disciplinary communicators
  • become cross-disciplinary computational problem solvers
Teaching to NGCM students The programme consisted of a year of taught material, before students go on to spend three years dedicated on a research topic. The NGCM benefitted from an extended network of diverse industrial and academic partners, providing strategic input, hands-on collaboration, sponsorship and internship opportunities. In this way, we enabled and encouraged the cross-fertilization between modelling paradigms, modelling communities, and application domains that had been identified by industry as critical to the future impact simulation modelling. The NGCM programme is closed and is no longer accepting new students, and our final cohort (2018/19) are now in the research phases of their PhDs.
