About

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Technology of Fusion Energy, or Fusion CDT for short, will train at least 77 PhD students in disciplines related to fusion energy over 5 intakes (2014-2018).

Students have access to a range of fusion energy facilities across the UK, including the Central Laser Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, the MAST and JET tokamaks at Culham in Oxfordshire, advanced materials research facilities, the Orion laser and high performance computing facilities. International links provide access to many other fusion devices around the world.

The combination of world-leading experts and world-class facilities creates an outstanding training environment for the next generation of fusion scientists – the generation who will exploit ITER, NIF and other international experiments to make fusion energy a reality.
