As a part of The University of Sheffield, the CDT is committed to building a motivated and diverse community, where staff and students demand the highest standards from each other and work together to maximise the benefits of difference. We aim to create a culture that is inclusive in every system and process.
We aim for our processes, operations and general academic life to be inclusive and supportive to all regardless of race, impairments, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, socio-economic background or culture. In particular, we will work towards:
- diversity in student, staff and partner organisations;
- an inclusive and supportive environment and culture; and
- sharing of good practice developed within the CDT, Department and Faculty
We recognise the importance of building a diverse community. Our aim is to embed equality, diversity and inclusion into the core of what we do. Our mission is for our students to conduct a diverse range of research and interact with a wide range of people.
The CDT naturally brings together a combination of diverse scientific disciplines and we actively seek students from a wider range of academic backgrounds. We support, and commit to, the Faculty of Engineering’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and place a particular focus on increasing the proportion of female engineers, addressing the current under-representation in Computer Science and SLT.
