CDT in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics - Programme

CDT in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics - Programme


The total length of training is 4 years. The program follows a "1+3" model. In year one, all cohort students will study for a new University of Cambridge masters degree (MRes) in gas turbine aerodynamics. In years two-to-four, students will undertake industrially-focused PhD projects at one of the three partner universities.

More specifically,  for those Oxford CDT students:

Year 1:   You will register and study for a MRes degree in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics at University of Cambridge, which will contain largely taught course modules and mini projects (3-4 weeks each) at the three partner universities and at some of the sites of the industrial partners.

Years 2-4: You will register for a DPhil to carry out a research project at Osney Thermo-fluids Laboratory, part of Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford.  Osney Lab is an internationally recognized centre in Gas Turbine Heat Transfer and Aerodynamics.  You will benefit from the network of leading experts in the field with a large portfolio of skills. Throughout of the research project, close interactions with an industrial partner are expected. In addition, the full cohort is regularly reunited for CDT seminars and workshop events.
