As well as domain-specific training, the NGCM CDT also invites speakers from industry to deliver training programmes that cover soft skills to help students present their research or prepare for progression milestones in their PhD programme.
CDT-NGCM are constantly looking into training opportunities which will enhance our students’ experience – if you have any suggestions please contact us. We are currently looking into courses on Natural Language Processing; please check back for updates.
Information on upcoming training can be found here.
