We have 94 Systems Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in the UK

Development of an Adaptive Predictive Maintenance Framework for Industrial Systems

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position to start in February 2024. About the position. The School of Engineering at University of Sunderland, UK is pleased to announce a fully funded (tuition fee waiver + monthly stipend) PhD position. Read more

Gesture-Agnostic Radar-Based Hand Tracking for VR/AR Systems

Supervisory Team. Dr Shelly Vishwakarma. Project description. Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are rapidly becoming integral to our digital experiences, necessitating the need for interfaces that are both non-intrusive and safeguard user privacy. Read more

Predicting and preventing cyclist accidents

Supervisory Team.   Dr Ioannis Kaparias. Project description. Cycling is an increasingly popular mode of travel in cities due to the great advantages that it offers in terms of space consumption, health and environmental sustainability. Read more

Quantifying and measuring the travel time reliability of public transport trips

Supervisory Team.   Dr Ioannis Kaparias. Project description.  Travel time in transport networks is not constant, but entails an element of variability that can be an important source of time losses. Read more

Re-designing roads for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

Supervisory Team.   Dr Ioannis Kaparias. Project description. The road transport sector has undergone radical transformation over the last few decades and is expected to continue doing so due to technological developments. Read more

Modelling and performance evaluation of an electromagnetic self-reversing screw-based regenerative shock absorber

Supervisory Team.   Mohamed M. Torbati, Tim Waters. Project description. Only a small fraction of the available vehicles’ fuel energy is used for driving the car itself and the rest is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies or used to power accessories. Read more

Thermo-electric materials for tab cooling of advanced batteries

Supervisory Team.   Prof Richard Wills, Dr Iris Nandhakumar. Project description. Effective thermal management of lithium-based battery systems is important for optimising cell efficiency, reducing cell degradation and preventing catastrophic failure. Read more

QUADRAT DTP: Assessing the Feasibility of a Hydrogen Economy in Scotland: Implications for Water Resources and Environmental Sustainability

This fully funded, 42-month PhD project is part of the QUADRAT Doctoral Training Partnership. The concept of a hydrogen economy has been gaining traction in recent years as a potential accelerator towards decarbonization and achieving net-zero carbon societies [1]. Read more

Diode-pumped frequency combs for classical and quantum applications

The Ultrafast Optics Group at Heriot-Watt University has available a fully-funded PhD position in the development of novel diode-pumped infrared laser sources, ideal platforms for free-space telecommunications and vibrational spectroscopy. Read more

Robust modelling and identifiability of complex biochemical systems

  Research Group: Biochemical and Bioprocess Engineering
Mechanistic mathematical models are powerful tools for describing complex biological systems and can significantly aid in improving the understanding of their underlying intricate (biochemical) interactions, predicting their dynamic responses and optimising their performance. Read more

Portable thermal energy storage for localised cooling in offices

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
Personal Cooling is becoming a health requirement in offices and other work places as climate change impacts ambient summer temperatures leading to higher internal temperatures in buildings than originally predicted during its design and construction. Read more
