Organization profile

Organisation profile

Jointly based at the Universities of Bristol and Bath, the Centre for Doctoral Training in Condensed Matter Physics aims to train students across a broad range of disciplines in the field of hard condensed matter physics, encompassing experiment, theory, fundamental physics and device applications. The aim is to break down traditional boundaries between these disciplines and thus produce graduates who are able to mix theory with experiment, embed state-of-the-art measurement or computational science in their research and exploit fundamental physics in applications. The CDT structure also emphasises strong engagement with industrial, academic and large facility partners as well as training in key transferable skills and public engagement.
