  Automation of clothing pattern construction from body scan data
  Research Group: Textiles and Apparel
  Dr S Gill, Dr A Harwood, Dr S Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to harness new technologies to create pattern blocks for clothing that better reflect the individual’s size, shape and proportion.
  Developing a sizing methodology for women’s sports compression garments
  Research Group: Textiles and Apparel
  Dr K Brubacher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will look to develop sizing systems suitable for sports compression garments. Sports compression garments (SCGs) are skin-tight, elastic garments that are designed to apply pressure to the underlying body with the aim to improve exercise performance and recovery.
  High-performance smart ceramic coatings on light alloys
  Dr B Mingo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vision set out by the UK government is that by the year 2050 almost every car and van should be Ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV).
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.
  Microstructure and defect formation in metal additive manufacturing
  Research Group: Imaging and Characterisation
  Dr W Mirihanage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (AM) is a futuristic technology for rapid production of net-shaped or near-net-shaped components without the design constraints of traditional manufacturing routes.
  Microstructure control in metal additive manufacturing
  Research Group: Imaging and Characterisation
  Dr W Mirihanage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal additive manufacturing (AM) is rapidly emerged as a viable alternative to subtractive manufacturing. Among various AM techniques.
