EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modelling

Project overview

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Computational Modelling (NGCM) provides an innovative training programme for post-graduate students to:
- be trained in state-of-the-art best practice for computational modelling
- be exposed to industrial and real-world problems
- become cross-disciplinary communicators
- become cross-disciplinary computational problem solvers

The programme consists of a year of taught material, before students go on to spend three years dedicated on a research topic. The NGCM benefits from an extended network of diverse industrial and academic partners, providing strategic input, hands-on collaboration, sponsorship and internship opportunities. In this way, we enable and encourage the cross-fertilization between modelling paradigms, modelling communities, and application domains that has been identified by industry as critical to the future impact simulation modelling. Unfortunately, the NGCM is therefore no longer accepting new students, and our final cohort (2018/19) are now in the research phases of their PhDs.
