Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (CDT)

Organization profile

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS CDT),  is where science, behaviour change AND future engineering meet. We are inspiring and working with the next generation of leaders to pioneer and shape the transition to clean, sustainable, affordable mobility for all.

We offer a 4-year transdisciplinary research programme, that integrates a bespoke one-year MRes training programme with a three to four-year PhD, to give comprehensive training and detailed knowledge in chosen specific subject areas alongside colleagues working across a broad spectrum of challenges facing the Industry.

AAPS is a remarkable hybrid think-and-do-tank. Where interests, disciplines and industry partners connect and collide to explore new ways of moving people.

This is a community that is both stretching and supportive. Encouraging students and industry to explore in a challenging but highly collaborative way. Students joining AAPS will be able to work with peers from a diverse background, academics with real world experience and industry partners including manufacturers, inventors and government.
