EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: Resilience in a Changing World (FIBE2)

 

In FIBE2 CDT we offer a radical rethink to deliver innovation for the cross-disciplinary and interconnected challenges in resilient infrastructure.

Our FIBE2 CDT 1+3 MRes/PhD programme proposes a new approach to infrastructure research where students from different
disciplines proactively forge new training and research collaborations. FIBE2 achieves this through:

  • Expanding the paradigm of a ‘T’ shaped engineer embodying a combination of depth and breadth of knowledge, by adding a third dimension to it (see Figure) to capture our new thinking around cross-disciplinary training and research.
  • High level infrastructure engineering concepts which are closely related to underpinning technical challenges and solutions using a mix of theoretical and experimental work.
  • A broad cohort-based training of the relevant environmental, societal, economic, business and policy impacts as well as RI and ED&I training.
  • These depth and breadth elements are interwoven and brought together through problem-based challenges using large-scale cross-disciplinary infrastructure case studies.
