Join the Centre for Doctoral Training in Control and Systems Engineering for your PhD

Welcome to the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Control & Systems Engineering. Study your PhD at ACSE and join us in a unique department, with a widely acknowledged reputation for world-leading research. You will enter a community of researchers some of whom will become friends and colleagues for life.

Why Control and Systems Engineering?

Systems and control theory plays a crucial role in modern science and technology as well as in economics, management and even politics. We believe that no other branch of engineering has a wider impact or more potential to contribute to the future prosperity and economic competitiveness of the UK. Indeed, the UK Government has recently identified robotics and autonomous systems as one of eight “great technologies” which will propel future UK growth.

Our alumni have built on their experience with us and gone on to become leaders in industry, commerce, academia and the public services, some reaching the tops of their chosen professions - join us and begin your path to the top.

Professional Training

In addition to your research topic, you will undertake wider research training aimed at making you an effective researcher and communicator and helping you become a leader in your chosen area.
