We have 46 satellite PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Artificial Intelligence-Enabled Free-Space Optics for Future Advanced Satellite Communications

  Research Group: Bradford-Renduchintala Centre for Space AI
Given their significant contribution to various aspects of modern life, satellite communications have become an essential part of our world today. Read more

Getting up to speed with satellite broadband

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

Unlocking the Future of High-Capacity Ground-to-Satellite Communications

Supervisory Team: Dr. Kyle Bottrill, Dr. Yongmin Jung, and Prof. Periklis Petropoulos . Project Description. High-capacity ground-to-satellite communications have long relied on microwaves for data transmission, as they have since the very first communications satellites were launched. Read more

Space-based constraints on UK ammonia emissions and air quality impacts

We are offering an exciting PhD opportunity, in the School of Earth and Environment, to undertake novel research targeting one of the major air quality challenges facing the UK – the ammonia problem! Ammonia (NH3) is emitted primarily from diffuse agricultural sources and difficult to quantify for legislative purposes. Read more

Mapping solar PV potential for existing buildings stocks in the UK by deep learning of satellite and aerial images data

Project Abstract. We are seeking an ambitious PhD candidate to join a cutting-edge research project aiming to map the solar photovoltaic (PV) potential for existing building stocks in the UK through the application of deep learning on satellite and aerial image data. Read more

Integrated High Altitude Platform: LEO Satellite Mega-Constellations for Next Generation Non-Terrestrial Networks

  Research Group: Communication Technologies
LEO satellite mega constellations promise to revolutionise wireless connectivity in many areas of the world. However, they have a fundamental drawback in that conventional cellular user equipment cannot be used directly. Read more

Machine learning strategies for Marine Cloud Brightening

Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB) could offer a feasible way to yield a cooling effect over the oceans, the magnitude of which will depend on the scale of operation, the timing and the locations over which spray devices are deployed. Read more

Concept Mission Design for Hex-Sats to detect biological agents from VLEO

Supervisory Team:  Dr Alexander Wittig, Dr Minkwan Kim. Project description. In this PhD, we will develop a complete mission concept for satellites to detect the release of biological agents on the ground through constant monitoring from space. Read more

Deep Learning Based Machine Vision for Space-Informed Applications

The increasing congestion of Earth's orbit with satellites and debris poses significant challenges in space activities, while sensors from space provide valuable data about the Earth to inform net zero. Read more

Space/Astrophysical plasma and space weather

 The Astronomy Unit at the Queen Mary University of London is offering a PhD scholarship (3 years) for a UK home student on the topic of Machine Learning for Space Plasma and Space Weather. Read more
