Our School of Engineering is a partner in a major EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Water Informatics: Science and Engineering (WISE CDT).
The project, with a total value in excess of £5.6 million, will be led by the University of Exeter and undertaken in partnership with the other GW4 universities of Cardiff, Bath, and Bristol. The new Centre for Doctoral Training will be offered across all four campuses.
The Centre will work closely with industrial and international academic partners to offer an advanced PhD training experience for postgraduate students, designed to supply the UK with its next generation of water scientists and engineers.
Within Cardiff the project will be undertaken in close collaboration with the School of Computer Science and Informatics and the School of Geography and Planning.

The main aim of the WISE CDT will be to meet the growing need for training a new breed of engineers and scientists (Hydroinformaticians) who are capable of working at the interface of traditionally separate informatics, science and engineering disciplines, in order to manage the water cycle effectively and sustainably.
