Horizon adopts a radical approach to training that combines taught elements with industry engagement and practice-led research in a highly flexible manner
Under the guidance of a personal mentor, each student will undertake a journey from an initially narrow disciplinary focus to a point where they are fully equipped for a career within industry or academia.
This will involve developing interdisciplinary skills in the human-centred design of ubiquitous computing as well as transferable skills in research, innovation and appreciation of societal impact.
Our doctoral training programme comprises three core elements.
The taught programme involves 180 credits of modules covering interdisciplinary and transferable skills.
Each student undertakes a three-month industrial internship with an industry partner during their first thirty six months of study, contributing 20 credits to the 180.
The research programme involves a 540 credit PhD research project with supervisors from multiple disciplines and industry and following a proposal developed during the first year of training.
