Project Description

Applications are invited for MSc research project, working on metal powder 3D printing of components with tunable thermal properties. The successful applicant will embark on a research program funded by a renowned motorsport partner.

Controlling the thermal properties of materials is critical for a desirable use in a range of automotive structures. The project will specifically look at powder 3D printing of Titanium and Aluminium and the ability to influence the thermal properties of the desirable structures. The project will also involve testing of thermal properties on the structures developed during the project. The successful candidate will be expected to come with materials science/engineering/physics background preferentially with prior experience in heat transfer. Metal 3D printing experience is not critical.

Funding Notes
