A number of industrial partners support the work of the CDT, and are based both here in the UK and abroad. Strong links to industry offer invaluable impact to the work of the CDT, both for the staff and students. Not only does it enable students to become more familiar with the industrial environment they are involved in, it can also help form and influence their research.
