Our PhD program is a bit different. We implement a cohort approach, with candidates appointed through a competitive process. Our PhD candidates must have completed the Master of Applied Cybernetics. The PhD program is 3 years in length.

Our PhD students are central to the creation of the new branch of engineering and work closely with the staff at the School of Cybernetics.

We have welcomed two cohorts of PhD candidates since the program was launched in July 2020. Read more about the launch of the program here.

Those wanting to apply for the PhD program should first apply to be accepted into our Masters program.
