Predicting the Uncertainty of Electromagnetic Simulations

Department of Electronic Engineering

About the Project

When performing an electromagnetic simulation, it is often difficult or time consuming to estimate how accurate the results are. In contrast, when doing electromagnetic measurements, making an estimate of the experimental uncertainty is a routine and well-defined process.

The aim of this project is to investigate how to make efficient and accurate estimates of simulation uncertainty that would give someone performing simulations a certain level of confidence in their results.

The project would build on early work in this area at York. The objectives would be to explore and expand potential methods and apply them to simulations within areas such as antenna design for 5G / 6G mobile communication systems or equipment design for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). The precise application area will depend on the interests of the student carrying out the research.

Entry requirements:
Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2.1) or equivalent in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Music Technology or a closely related subject.

How to apply:
Applicants should apply via the University’s online application system at Please read the application guidance first so that you understand the various steps in the application process.

Funding Notes

This is a self-funded project and you will need to have sufficient funds in place (eg from scholarships, personal funds and/or other sources) to cover the tuition fees and living expenses for the duration of the research degree programme. Please check the Electronic Engineering website View Website for details about funding opportunities at York.
