  Aggregative Charging Control Of Electric Vehicle Populations
  Dr W Issa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ambitious targets in the United Kingdom for increasing the share of renewable energy sources integrated to the network, and the need for providing affordable, resilient and clean energy, call for a paradigm shift in energy systems operations.
  An AI-based digital pathology platform
  Dr A Shenfield, Prof C Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Preoperative chemotherapy is used to treat patients with high-risk breast cancers – such as locally advanced breast cancer or breast cancers with clinically aggressive tumours – to reduce the size of the primary tumour and facilitate surgery and/or radiation treatment.
  Aqueous Erosion-Corrosion Studies of nanoscale multilayer PVD coatings
  Dr Y Purandare, Prof P Hovsepian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solid particle erosion-corrosion of surfaces is highly destructive in nature and leads to deleterious effects such as loss of material, efficiency and economic losses.
  Biogas enrichment and nutrient recovery from wastewater using bio-electrochemical systems
  Dr M Goel, Dr A Asthana
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrated biorefinery is emerging, sustainable, energy producing wastewater treatment, which can also provide a renewable source of various useful products, such as biohydrogen, bioelectricity, nutrients and other biobased products.
  Control Strategies of Power Optimization for Smart Buildings
  Dr W Issa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Buildings are taking 40% of the world energy to generate comfort and healthy environment to the inmates. However, upgrading buildings to address their energy efficiency using cutting edge technology is prime important.
  Development of Modular Large Wind Turbine Blades
  Dr A Asthana, Dr F Kara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbine blades measuring up to 85 m, are manufactured from a single piece of glass fiber and can cost up to £100,000. The transportation of these large blades requires expensive specialist machinery and often new road construction, costing ~£50,000/blade.
