Electronic and Electrical Engineering Scholarships

Funded PhD project: UK and EU

Value: Funding covers the cost of tuition fees and a maintenance grant of £14,500 per annum for three years.

Number of awards: Up to 3 scholarships available

Deadline: 30/11/2016

Project description

Applications are welcomed from outstanding candidates across the range of the School’s research areas, with priority given to the following projects:

  • Single-cell Nanobiopsy: a nanorobotics tool to study virus infection
  • Operation and control of Smart Grids
  • Design and Control of Wearable Assisted Devices

The School is ranked in the top 5 in the UK for electronic and electrical engineering research, according to the Research Excellence Framework 2014.

100% of all research activity was rated as either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, which is sector-leading across all subjects and all universities. (UoA: Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Metallurgy and Materials)

The impact of our research is wide-ranging, covers many sectors and our staff deservedly have international reputations for the quality of their work.

Entry requirements

A first class honours degree or equivalent in electronic/electrical engineering, physics, computing, applied mathematics or other relevant science/engineering discipline as appropriate to the specific research area, along with clear evidence of research aptitude (via, for example, research internships or research projects within your Bachelors/Masters study).

If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University’s minimum English Language requirements.

How to apply

Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the university's website. In the funding section, please state ‘Electronic and Electrical Engineering Scholarships’ as your sponsor.

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
