Auxiliary Power systems for Electric and Fuel Cell Vehicles
Applications are invited from self-funded full time applicants for a PhD project on the design and development of auxiliary power systems for alternatively powered vehicles such as Battery Electric Vehicles and those powered by Fuel Cells. The work will involve design, simulation and evaluation at a system level supported by telematics data and potentially through the development and testing of hardware prototypes.
This project is suitable for students with a first class or upper second class (minimum 2.1) honours degree (in a related discipline) from a Higher Education Institution in the UK or an acceptable international equivalent qualification. The University of Sunderland is an eligible institution for U.S. (Federal School Code: G35073) and Canadian (EI Code: PUFL) Student Finance Programmes. All international students studying at postgraduate level are awarded a £1,500 scholarship in each year of study. You do not have to apply for this scholarship; it is automatically applied to reduce your total annual tuition fee.
