Based at the Universities of Bristol and Bath, our 4-year unique interdisciplinary PhD programme provides  you with an immersive training experience with the opportunity to learn from experts drawn from the two universities, industry and research partners as a member of an interdisciplinary cohort of research students.

You will gain hands-on experience of realistic large-scale infrastructures in our state-of-the-art critical infrastructure and Internet of Things testbed at Bristol,  become familiar with major programmes of research on human aspects of security and privacy in Bath, and enrich your learning with our masterclasses, innovation challenges and placements/internships at industry partners and international research centres.

Professor Awais Rashid outlines how the current cyber security challenges are addressed by the CDT with a new generation of leaders and experts. 

As we move towards a hyperconnected future, cyber-attacks form one of the major threats to national and international security. We need future leaders in academia and industry who are able to anticipate the myriad of trust, identity, privacy and security challenges in complex infrastructures and develop solutions to overcome them.

Professor Awais Rashid (Bristol), Director
