Available research projects

The CDT supports research across the field of topological design, working with researchers in every School in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, and beyond. Here you can find out more information about our currently available projects.

Applications for cohort 5 in the CDT are now open.  If you would like to apply for any of these projects, please complete the form that can be found on our application web page.

Listed below are a range of available projects.  Please download the project proposal to find out more about the project.  This list is far from exhaustive, and if you are interested in a particular area of topology or topological design, please contact the CDT to discuss this further with us.
