Postgraduate Study

We aim to help you thrive in a dynamic environment. Our fundamental computing science research is extended through application to industrial and interdisciplinary challenges.

Centres for Doctoral Training

We are one of very few UK universities with two EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in computer science.  Together these two training centres will offer more than 100 PhD scholarships until 2019.

Cloud Computing for Big Data

Since 2014, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Cloud Computing for Big Data has funded more than 50 PhD scholarships and equipped graduates with the expertise to be able to answer a global skills shortage.

Following on from this success, the future of the CDT will be funded by investment from Newcastle University and industry partners. It will continue to provide a bespoke training and research programme with strong cohort interactions and industry links to develop future leaders in data analytics.

Digital Civics

Since 2014, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Digital Civics has funded more than 50 PhD scholarships based in Newcastle University's HCI research group Open Lab.

The Centre is a partnership between Newcastle University, local government (Northumberland, Gateshead and Newcastle councils), local and national NGOs, international technology companies, and many of the leading universities in North America, Asia, Europe and Australasia.
