Full Project Detail

Technical ceramics are becoming increasingly popular within RF communications, electronics, defence, high temperature applications and the medical device industry but are conventionally restricted to single materials and simple shapes. New additive manufacturing techniques will in the future offer higher geometric complexity and multi-material printing for added functionality across these industries.

In this project you will have the opportunity to work with world leading experts in Additive Manufacturing of ceramics and metamaterials. It will be your job to further the knowledge of multi-material AM manufacturing through FEM simulation and experimental verification to increase the manufacturing speed and quality. There will be exciting opportunities for you to further your knowledge in additive manufacturing, ceramics manufacture, FEM simulations, RF communication and more.

Find out more:

As part of the Additive Manufacturing Research Group (AMRG) you will experience a vibrant research environment of more than 10 PhD students working on a broad range of areas within additive manufacturing.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in Engineering or Materials Science or a related subject. A relevant Master’s degree and/or experience in one or more of the following will be an advantage: Ceramics manufacture, FEM modelling.
