Based at Bath and Bournemouth Universities, the CDE is an EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training funding doctoral researchers. We offer a four year fully funded EngD programme. Our researchers work closely with and in some of the most exciting high-tech companies in the world, not for a token short-term placement but fully-embedded, usually for three years. Our company partners not only include animation, VFX and games companies (for example MPC, Ninja Theory, Double Negative and Sony), but also include companies who use these skills in other business areas (NHS, Perkin Elmer Ltd,National Trust). CDE offers outstanding and unique opportunities to students and companies alike.
Founded in 2009, CDE is the national Doctoral Training Centre in these sectors with £20 million of investment. We are a big and supportive CDE family working alongside some of the most outstanding companies in the world.
