Project Description

WMG, University of Warwick and Autodesk are seeking a candidate to undertake research leading to the award of an International Engineering Doctorate awarded jointly by the Universities of Warwick, Exeter and Cranfield.

As a ‘research engineer’ on our International Doctorate programme you will have unrivalled access to some of the best teaching and industrial expertise in the world, across three universities. While you will be based at WMG and Autodesk, you will also spend time at Cranfield and Exeter Universities to give you the broadest possible experience. You will emerge from the four-year programme more confident and better equipped to make a difference to your company and the global marketplace.

This opportunity also provides a substantial tax free stipend equivalent to many graduate jobs.

Project

The role will involve working on several projects looking at how Artificial Intelligence can help to shape the future of Design and Manufacturing. Working within the Advanced Consulting Group, the position will involve working with internal research groups to bring their advanced research into applied manufacturing applications.

The Advanced Consulting group is a mixed discipline group consisting of software engineers, mechanical engineers, design engineers and simulation experts. This unique mix of skills work together to reimagine how manufacturing will change in the future.

The successful candidate will work with manufacturing engineers and customers to understand the problem domain for the work that will be undertaken. They will then work with the research groups to define how AI could be used to enhance or change manufacturing processes.

Business Need and Opportunity

Autodesk have a long history of leading the world of design. Now, through acquisition of leading CAM companies they also have a long history of making things, making them world leaders in the design and manufacture of many different types of components and parts.
As an industry leading company, Autodesk are looking to the future to understand how Artificial Intelligence will change the manufacturing industry. From machine guided engineering processes to automated tooling selection, these are just some of the decisions and processes where AI and ML can help with autonomous systems.
