Are you still accepting new students?

Unfortunately, the NGCM will no longer be recruiting new students; our final cohort was accepted for the start of the 2018/19 academic session, and have all now progressed into their research phase.

What kind of career would the programme prepare me for?

The PhD programme prepares graduates for a research career in academia or industry. It also encourages interdisciplinary thinking, and the analytical skills developed during a PhD in computational modelling are relevant to the design, analysis, control, and management of large systems across many domains, from industrial engineering to ecosystems services, and from IT, to the financial and even entertainment sectors. The diversity of commercial interests is illustrated by our industrial and governmental partners.

Which industrial and governmental organisations have been partnered with the Centre?

A broad range of industrial and academic partners are listed on our partners page.
