Turbo CDT Turbomachinery Training and Research
Bringing together internationally-recognised universities and global industry partners to create a unique consortium for turbomachinery training and research
CDT has assembled the UK’s three leading universities in the field of gas turbine aerodynamics (Cambridge, Oxford and Loughborough) and some of the world’s leading gas turbine and turbomachinery manufacturers (Rolls-Royce, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Siemens and Dyson). The programme is guided by an Advisory Group of the world’s top experts (from NASA, Rolls-Royce and MIT). The resulting partnership of academia and industry enables the CDT to deliver a unique whole engine, whole sector, training experience.
The CDT in Future Propulsion and Power is a 4 year programme: a 1 year masters course leading to the MRes in Future Propulsion and Power, followed by a 3 year PhD project sponsored by one of the collaborating companies (Rolls-Royce, MHI, Siemens, Dyson). The training approach taken by the MRes is holistic and incorporates ‘hands on’ experience of real products as well as access to diverse material previously only available on specialist industry courses. Projects focus both on the detail of key technologies, and also on the integrated nature of the gas turbine as a whole. The CDT will teach the skills, and provide the necessary environment, to develop research questions and projects that deliver both academic excellence and maximum industrial impact.
