Mathematics of Planet Earth CDT

The MPE CDT is a 1+3 year funded PhD programme, with the first year taking the form of an MRes (Masters by Research) course, leading to a jointly awarded degree from Imperial College London and the University of Reading. The following 3 years focus on the PhD project, and lead to the award of a PhD from either Imperial or Reading, depending on source of the major supervisory input.

The first year MRes students work as a cohort across the two institutions, whether based in Reading within the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences or based at Imperial within the Department of Mathematics, in each case in high spec accommodation designed for the CDT.
