coastal engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 21 coastal engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Swash zone sediment transport on mixed sand-gravel beaches

Beach and barrier systems with a substantial gravel fraction, referred to as ‘gravel barriers’, represent up to 20% of the wave-exposed coastline of Great Britain. Read more

Effects of flexible vegetation on oscillatory flow hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Computational Fluid-Structure Interaction with Turbulent and Multiphase flows

Fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems involving turbulent and multiphase flows and flexible structures find numerous applications in Science and Engineering, e.g., aeroelasticity of aircraft wings and wind turbine blades, wave-structure interactions of offshore structures, flexible wave energy converters, floating solar farms, and flight of birds and insects. Read more

Mapping worldwide hotspots of future coastal flood hazard

In the coming decades sea level rise and changes in weather extremes, and potentially tides, will increase the frequency and magnitude of coastal flooding for millions of people living in low-lying coastal areas. Read more

Unmanaged realignments – success and co-benefits of coastal wetland restoration through accidentally breached sea defences

  Research Group: Geography and Environmental Studies
Flood protection of coastal populations around the UK, Ireland and globally is a major concern when considering the projected climate-change induced increase of global sea levels. Read more

PhD Degrees in the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering

Our interdisciplinary approach to research, encompassing the fields of Architectural History and Theory, Architectural and Structural Conservation, Lightweight Structures, Hydraulics and Earthquake Engineering and Dynamics and Climate Resilience of the Built Environment. Read more

Understanding process interactions that cause wave overtopping for hazard managers

A 1m rise in mean sea level is almost certain this century and it is estimated that 20% of England’s coastal defences could fail under just half this rise (Committee on Climate Change, 2018). Read more

Wave Carpet: Protecting coastal zones while generating electricity

A submerged wave carpet is a deformable plate, or elastic mat, that can be used to extract the wave energy, and for mitigation of large waves in coastal areas. Read more

Impact of grain roughness on porous media flows under conditions relevant to the subsurface

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Droplet Impacts with Functional Surfaces

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

On Analysis and Design of Submerged Wave Energy Devices

We invite applications for a Ph.D. position in Marine Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering at the University of Dundee, Scotland. The project aims in analyzing new generation of wave energy devices that are fully submerged, namely an Oscillating Submerged Disc, and a Wave Carpet. Read more

Autonomous Underwater Vehicle with multi-sensors prototype for underwater onsite monitoring

Maritime activities remain a crucial factor to the economy with high expectations for future growth. According to the United Nation, there are more than three billion people depend on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods. Read more

Effect of sea level rise, coastal erosion, and flooding risk on track

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
Background. With the events at Dawlish and sea water levels at Skegness predicted to rise 35cm by 2050, and coupled with the recent effects of storms such as Babet, coastal issues will become more prevalent in the future. Read more
