  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Tuesday, July 31, 2018
  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

*This scholarship is part funded by the Welsh Government’s European Social Fund (ESF) convergence programme for West Wales and the Valleys.*

The project will research and develop a framework where the latest massively parallel computing engines (GPU’s/Co-processors) and multi-core CPUs are utilised within an engineering simulation system to accelerate targeted areas of the computational model. The nature of the PhD research work is multidisciplinary, involving mathematics, computer science and engineering applications in material, manufacturing and energy sectors. The PhD project is open ended with a large degree of freedom to explore further into several related directions in parallel computing, computer simulation, data analysis, and engineering applications. The project is collaborative between a large academic research team and a leading industrial partner.

The scholarship provides 3 years of funding with a 6 month period to complete the thesis. The achievement of a postgraduate skills development award, PSDA, is compulsory for each KESS II scholar and is based on a 60 credit award.

Eligibility

Candidates should have a 2.1 or above in their undergraduate degree in Engineering (civil, mechanical, aerospace, geotechnical engineering, or related subjects), Computer Science, Mathematics, or Physics. They should also be eligible for UK/EU Fees.

Candidates with a background in engineering and physics (civil, mechanical, aerospace, geotechnical, or related subjects), computer science, and mathematics are encouraged to apply, and relevant MSc degrees would be appreciated.

We would normally expect the academic and English Language requirements to be met by point of application. For details on the University’s English Language entry requirements, please visit – http://www.swansea.ac.uk/admissions/englishlanguagerequirements/
