This EPSRC funded centre for doctoral training aims to produce a new sort of PhD student, trained over 4 years in many advanced Nano techniques, innovation and business practice, as well as novel science. We emphasise cross-disciplinary training in the Physical Sciences, including Chemistry, Physics, Materials and Engineering and accept applicants of the highest calibre from these backgrounds.

NanoDTC welcomed its first cohort of PhD students in autumn 2009. Although the main structure of the course remains unchanged since then, each year we are implementing small improvements and fine tuning of its elements. With a few years’ experience in delivery of the NanoDTC programme we are confident that the programme remains on the cutting edge of Nanoscience training worldwide.
