Our studentships are co-created and co-supervised with project partners to ensure the CDT generates recruits with the right skills and expertise and our work is aligned with our partners' interests and challenges.

Ways we can support you

The CDT is part of the University's Signal Processing Research Group - a community of experts with a variety of skills and expertise. The research group has particular strengths in Bayesian computational methodology, autonomy, decision support, data fusion, tracking, image processing, radar processing, acoustic analysis, text analytics, machine learning, behavioural analytics, simulation and energy-efficient hardware implementation.  As well as offering partnerships with the CDT, we offer consultancy, collaboration and contract research.  Visit the Ways to Engage page to learn more.

Benefits of a dynamic partnership

Our project partners have access to a stream of potential recruits with skills and experience that align with their business performance needs both now and in the future. Find out about our current research projects.

We consider our partners to be a crucial part of the CDT community. The CDT PhD projects are planned, supervised and delivered through regular discussions between the industrial and academic supervisors and students ensuring all parties have a voice throughout. 

Partners are invited to CDT partner networking events where current partners can share common interests, challenges and opportunities as well as Alan Turing Institute Showcase events, training and CDT Mini Projects (which give partners the opportunity to provide one-off challenges to the CDT to test the feasibility of future programmes of work).

Partner supervisors are given University of Liverpool honorary supervisory status granting access to wide variety of training, events and facilities. View our Partner Feedback page here

Current partners

We currently have a diverse group of partners of all sizes who set a high standard and provide a solid and confident foundation on which to build. You can view our current partners here.

Through the CDT’s extensive network of partners, supervisors and Strategic Advisory Board, we can enhance our partner experience through links with international research facilities such as Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre, CERN, the Farr Institute and Fraunhofer.
