surface engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 262 surface engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Data centric modelling of adhesive wear

Supervisory Team:  Robert Wood, Jo Grundy and Dave Stewart (RRSL).  Project description. The occurrence of adhesive wear between sliding surfaces can cause high friction, vibration, material transfer between surfaces and even seizure of components. 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

Modelling the Role of Hard Particles in Hard Facing Alloys

Supervisory Team:  Robert Wood, Georges Limbert and Dave Stewart (RRSL). Project description. Hard facing alloys, such as those used in nuclear power plant, are composite materials comprising carbides (and other hard phases), in galling resistant metallic matrices. Read more

Investigating a transplantable biomaterial for retinal cell regeneration: a promising treatment for degenerative retinal eye diseases

Replacing degenerate retinal cells with new ones using conventional biomaterials has thus far yielded limited success against degenerative retinal diseases, dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and subsequent geographic atrophy of the macula. Read more

Development of next generation electrosurgery electrode design via surface microtexturing

SELF FUNDED PROJECT. 3 years full time, start date 1st April, 1st July, 1st October 2024. Electrosurgery is a medical procedure that utilises an alternating and high frequency current (200kHz-3.3MHz) to either cut and/or coagulate tissues and achieve haemostasis. Read more

Locking CO2 into cement: new perspectives from advanced spectroscopic techniques

EPSRC DTP studentship in Engineering. 3.5 years starting 1st October 2024. Project Summary. Our aim is to improve carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) in the cement and concrete industry by introducing reactive carbonates to replace clinkers. Read more

Fouling control and cleaning of membrane for water treatment

Supervisory Team.   Yongqiang Liu. Project description. Globally, water scarcity is a pressing issue, affecting between two and three billion people worldwide, as reported by the recent UN World Water Development report. Read more

Developing an ingenious hybrid additive-subtractive manufacturing route for producing biomedical implants via metal AM processes and laser post-processing

3 Year Self funded project. This PhD project will ignite an exciting new research area involving hybrid additive-subtractive manufacturing (AM-SM) routes for the fabrication of biomedical implants economically to meet the growing demand of biomedical industries. Read more
