EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Algebra, Geometry and Quantum Fields

21st Century Mathematics at the Heart of Innovation

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Algebra, Geometry, and Quantum Fields (AGQ CDT) is a collaborative effort by University of Glasgow, University of Edinburgh, and Heriot-Watt University. Our programme is at the forefront of mathematical innovation, leveraging the power of symmetry, geometry, and quantum physics to shape the technologies of tomorrow.

Revolutionising Mathematical Research

Our research is revolutionising mathematics by unifying disciplines, integrating quantum physics, and advancing computing and AI. We’re creating new algebraic structures and mathematical predictions that are integral to modern technologies like encryption, internet search, and quantum computing.

Training Mathematical Revolutionaries

Our vision is to train a new generation of researchers fluent in the dynamic interplay between algebra, geometry, and quantum fields. Our PhD programme prepares leaders for industry and academia, accelerating the journey from mathematical concepts to real-world applications.

Empowering a Diverse Cohort 

We’re committed to attracting a diverse group of students, ready to influence the UK’s mathematical and industrial sectors. Our training encompasses core scientific principles and cutting-edge thesis projects, setting the stage for our graduates to become future leaders in various sectors.
