The United Kingdom will fund 65 centers for doctoral training in various universities to support students pursuing doctorate degrees in engineering and physical science.

An investment package worth more than $1.4 billion from the British government, businesses, charities and academia will be provided to the CDTs in the coming years to train over 4,000 talented students in critical technologies, including artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, semiconductors, telecoms and engineering biology.

King’s College London, Cardiff University, the University of Manchester and the University of Edinburgh are among the educational institutions that will receive government funding.

The training centers will prepare students to use the technologies in improving existing applications in medicine, defense and security, and other industry areas. The U.K. offers most CDT opportunities outside the southeast of England, including in Glasgow, Bristol and Manchester.

Michelle Donelan, British secretary of state for science, innovation and technology, said investing in critical technology skills will provide the students with tools needed to pioneer discoveries and create the foundation for an economy that creates jobs and improves lives across the country.
