We have 41 Heriot-Watt University, School of Engineering & Physical Sciences PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

PhD Project: Could in service life concrete carbonation lead to negative emissions?

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
Concrete is a fundamental building material essential to economic development and a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions during its production. Read more

PhD project: Developing non-critical raw materials-based electrocatalysts for green hydrogen generation from wastewater

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
The project focuses on the development of cost-effective electrocatalysts derived from non-critical raw materials, aiming to replace expensive platinum group metals in the electrolysis process. Read more

PhD project: Deep removal of CO2 from industrial sources using innovative electrification concepts

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
This project will explore deep removal of CO. 2. from industrial sources (i.e., CO. 2. capture rates higher than 95%) and will focus on the development and assessment of novel electrochemical-regeneration methods that can be coupled to amine-based carbon capture technologies. Read more

PhD project: Digital twin for decarbonising industry using hydrogen and low-carbon energy vectors

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
The candidate will work closely with industry to develop digital twin solutions for incorporating renewable energy options in industrial clusters, such as hydrogen, batteries, solar, wind and heat-pumps, for deep decarbonisation. Read more

PhD project: Integration of direct air capture into industrial clusters and renewable energy systems

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
Large scale direct air CO. 2. capture may be needed to counter greenhouse gas emissions from so-called ‘hard to abate’ sectors (aviation, agriculture, certain industrial activities). Read more

PhD project: Sustainable production of chemicals and aviation fuels

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
Large scale deployments of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) and integration with green hydrogen are a promising pathway to produce value-added chemicals and sustainable aviation fuels. Read more

PhD project: Hydrogen and carbon dioxide storage and transport for net-zero industrial clusters

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
This project focuses on establishing reliable, cost-effective, large hydrogen or carbon dioxide storage and distribution hubs. In collaboration with industrial partners, we aim to identify and reduce the hurdles for geological storage of hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Read more

Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Visible wavelength optical metasurfaces for use in user-machine interfaces (STMicroelectronics and University of St Andrews)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
Optical metasurfaces offer complete freedom in definition of an optical function and do so on a flat surface. This property enables fabrication of sophisticated optics at wafer-level and therefore opens up the possibility of ultra-high-volume manufacture, in particular to address consumer markets. Read more

Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Novel laser sources in the mid-infrared spectral region for security and sensing applications (Fraunhofer and University of Strathclyde)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
This project will address the urgent requirement for new photonics tools in the mid-infrared (mid-IR) spectral region to police stricter greenhouse gas (GHG) emission standards and to progress imaging capabilities in poor visibility for security applications. Read more

Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Next generation long range laser rangefinders based on single photon detectors and new laser technologies (Thales and Heriot-Watt University)

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
Laser Rangefinders are a key element of modern sensor systems and can range up to 20km with an accuracy of less than 1m. Thales UK produced the first in-service laser rangefinder in 1965, just a few years after the invention of the laser, and have been designing and manufacturing laser systems ever since. Read more
