WISE CDT provides a unique opportunity for students to participate in shaping their own research topic. This, coupled with the wide range of skills they will acquire by completing all that the postgraduate school offers, makes them very attractive prospective recruits for the Water industry.
WISE CDT exemplifies our aim to build a highly skilled workforce with industry partners through doctoral training.
Wessex Water is seeing the emergence of skills and knowledge gaps in common with other companies in the water sector…. The WISE CDT helps address these gaps by providing leading interdisciplinary training across the subject areas of water engineering and informatics which are vital for the future of this industry and highly pertinent to our company.
It’s immensely satisfying that WISE students continue to support the economic, environmental and social strategies of business with their cutting edge bespoke research
