The University of Cambridge Civil Engineering Division has been successful in its bid for a Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: “Unlocking Net Zero”.

hyperTunnel is one of 30 industry partners to be working in collaboration with the university, providing industrial placements and training.

The EPSRC-funding will focus on meeting the user needs of the infrastructure sector in its pursuit of net zero by 2050. The £8.1 million funding from the EPSRC is supported by £1.3 million funding from the University and more than £2.5 million from industry, as well as more than £8.9 million of in-kind contributions.

More than 70 fully funded studentships will be made available over the next five years. Recruitment is underway for the first cohort who will start in October 2024.

The ambitious vision will be to develop the next generation of highly talented doctoral graduates who will be equipped to lead the design and implementation of the net zero infrastructure agenda in the UK.
