  Design optimisation in tall buildings
  Research Group: Institute for Sustainable Building Design
  Dr M Gormley
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

dramatically changing the landscape of global cities. The creation of these complex vertical communities poses major operational challenges for the systems relied upon for occupant safety and the responsible management of water resources.
  Network integration for tall buildings
  Research Group: Institute for Sustainable Building Design
  Dr M Gormley
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of high-rise buildings is now at an unprecedented rate, with their number and scale rapidly and dramatically changing the landscape of global cities.
  Intertwining the Tangible and Intangible Aspects of Historic Building Information Modelling (HBIM) SEBE0025
  Dr S Jaradat, Prof J Currie
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. We currently live in data-rich societies where we constantly collect various forms of data in both systematic and unsystematic ways.
  Compartment fire-fighting and fire dynamics - Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship
  Dr R Carvel, Dr R Hadden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship. Fire adapts to its environment. When a fire becomes established in a compartment within a building or structure, the fire behaviour depends upon the nature of the fuel, the airflow dynamics in the space and the heat exchange between the fire and its environment.
  Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) in Construction
  Dr F Bosche, Dr S Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern visualisation technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR) / Mixed Reality (MR), along with Building Information Modelling (BIM), AI and Robotics are collectively revolutionising the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry.
  Water treatment with membranes in Scotland: what affects their performance, and how to improve their lifespan?
  Dr A Semião, Dr S Romero-Vargas Castrillon, Dr M Graham
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mankind cannot survive without potable water. Despite this, our potable water resources are becoming more polluted due to human activity (e.g., mining, industry and agriculture), rendering them unfit for consumption.
  New numerical integration approaches for finite element simulations
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerical integration of area and volume integrals (also known as cubature) is a fundamental, but often overlooked, component of many computational techniques in continuum mechanics.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
  Digital Education in STEM: automated evaluation of students interacting with remote laboratories
  Prof T Drysdale
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Remote laboratories comprise experimental apparatus that can be observed and controlled in real time, from a remote location. When used in undergraduate education, remote laboratories allow more active learning to be included in a course than would otherwise be possible.
  EPSRC InDustrial CDT for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE)
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A jointly awarded Doctorate in Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, Exeter University and Strathclyde University, offering ten places per year funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
