PhD in Cyber Security - Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT)

CSIT's Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) PhD program is for four years and comprises a taught element in the first year involving six modules over two semesters (alternatively students can opt not to do the taught component and do a traditional 3 year PhD). Students will then embark on their PhD in Cyber Security research project for the reminder of the four year period.  At the end of Year 2, or 3, students will be afforded the opportunity to undertake an internship, either in the UK or abroad, with one of CSIT’s many industrial, academic or government partners in order to broaden their wider expertise. CSIT CDT programme will also include a placement at CSIT labs in year four, with a focus on developing commercially viable business ideas.

As part of the PhD programme, students will be trained in the NABC methodology by CSIT’s own in-house commercialisation staff. In addition, they will experience CSIT labs, either by supporting candidate IP development, or proposing IP developed during their own PhD, and if selected gaining the significant impact of that programme. This is a genuinely innovative and exciting component of our PhD programme.
