Project Details

Description

Aberystwyth University is one of eight partner universities to have been awarded a new Centre for Doctoral Training in Diamond Science and Technology (CDT) by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Led by the University of Warwick, the new Diamond Science and Technology CDT also features Bristol, Cardiff, Imperial, Newcastle, Oxford and Strathclyde universities, and around 30 commercial companies.

The creation of the new centre was announced on Friday 22 November by Universities and Science Minister, David Willetts and forms part of a £350m investment by the UK Government to train over 3,500 postgraduate students in engineering and physical sciences.

The new CDT will bring diamond research to a new threshold which promises many pioneering diamond enabled technologies and original scientific insights.

It will deliver innovative and interdisciplinary training and research that will help cross that threshold and impact significantly in many areas of strategic interest.
