About the Centre

Vital infrastructures, such as water, power, transportation, and manufacturing, are becoming increasingly inter-connected through the Internet of Things (IoT), smart grid innovations and the growth in wireless sensor technologies. 

To protect our everyday services, we need more people who can understand and resolve the trust, identity, privacy and security issues in these large-scale, hyper-connected infrastructures (TIPS-at-scale).

Our centre of doctoral training  is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to train the cyber security leaders of the future. It is a joint-university, inter-disciplinary collaboration between the Universities of Bristol and Bath.

Why study with us?

  • Our approach is fundamentally different from regular research training. You will learn from leading experts within multiple disciplines, including psychology, management, engineering, sociology and computer science. This will give you a holistic understanding that is more attuned to the complex realities of tackling cyber security problems in real-scale infrastructures.

  • From Day 1, you will learn to approach the problems of cyber security (trust, identity, privacy and security) from an at-scale perspective and develop solutions that are rooted in a framework for responsible innovation.

  • We deliver an immersive training experience: innovation challenges in Bristol and Bath, expert masterclasses and work placements with our industry partners. You will also have access to our state-of-the-art critical infrastructure and Internet of Things testbed, one of the few facilities of its kind internationally.

  • You will be prepared for a wide choice of careers, from world-leading research and consulting, to being part of large-scale engineering industries, software development organisations, telecommunication and infrastructure providers.
