This PhD project is initially offered on a self-funding basis. It is open to applicants with their own funding, or those applying to funding sources. However, excellent candidates may be considered for a University scholarship. Tuition fees for 2018 for postgraduate research students at the University of Strathclyde are £4,330 for Home/EU students and £18,750 for international students, not including bench fees.
Students applying should have (or expect to achieve) a minimum 2.1 undergraduate degree in a relevant engineering/science discipline, and be highly motivated to undertake multidisciplinary research.
