Project Description

Start date: October 2019

Supervisor: Dr M Roach and Mr T Vardakis

Sponsoring company: Tata Steel

The development of low-cost wireless remote sensors opens a raft of opportunities for industry. This research project will look at the application of these sensors in the hot strip mill at Port Talbot. The research will look to make sense of real time data collected from these wireless sensors, working collaboratively with the industry partner to inform/improve management decision making, around maintenance activity of the hot strip mill.

The Research Engineer will:
• Integrate these new data streams with existing hot mill data;
• Use various data analytics techniques to translate the data into useful information;
• Work with the industry partner to understand the hot rolling process and in negotiating existing IT infrastructure on the plant.

We welcome applications from candidates with an Engineering or Physical Science degree (minimum level 2:1), or a combination of degree and equivalent relevant experience to the same level, to join the M2A community of research engineers.

Please visit our website for more information on eligibility.
