3. Fully Funded PhD Position in Ontology

Summary of PhD Program:

This PhD study is funded by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl). The study intends to develop a skill ontology, a knowledge representation method that describes skills in a standardised, semantically structured and machine-readable format. It also seeks to develop a reasoning framework for accurate and contextually informed decision-making, along with an explanation generation method to provide transparency in the decision-making process. The ultimate goal is to develop a proof-of-concept software tool to effectively implement the skill ontology in specific use cases, such as recruitment and training personalisation. This tool aims to improve the effectiveness of personnel management practices by ensuring that individuals possessing the appropriate skills are assigned to the right job positions at the right time.

4. Fully Funded PhD Position in Advanced Coatings for Improved Environmental Performance 

Summary of PhD Program:

This PhD project involves researching the bridging technologies on behalf of the industrial sponsor Siemens Energy Industrial Turbomachinery Limited, which is a manufacturer of industrial gas turbines (IGT). The successful research into those bridging technologies (which will include modelling and experimental work) will reduce greenhouse emissions by enabling operation of the IGTs at higher metal temperatures and with novel fuels. The proposed research therefore aims to develop coating technologies, which will provide component materials the ability to cope with higher operating temperatures, and may be further beneficial when hydrogen fuel, or other novel green fuels, become standard, as these fuels may induce higher operating temperatures.

6. Fully Funded PhD Position in Design of vehicle health management processor

Summary of PhD Program:

The success of IVHM depends on extensive research and engineering directed to redesign and re-architect existing infrastructure used for avionics. The proposed processor would be the core of IVHM system, integrated with each avionic system to perform the necessary local programming and computations. It also provides communication with IVHM processors of other systems in the hierarchy of HDS and multi-agent system. Hence, IVHM processor is a generic system that enhances each avionic application with failure prediction, detection and effective self-healing/repair and self-management capabilities while providing the required interfacings and communications.

9. Fully Funded PhD Position in Autonomous space systems networking

Summary of PhD Program:

The increased performance and higher cost efficiency in both platforms and launch services enabled the development of constellations of hundreds (even thousands) of small satellites. Constellations have become a predominant phenomenon of the New Space ecosystem. They have fostered the development of new downstream services such as global broadband coverage and low latency data communications in the telecommunication field, or high-resolution global-scale coverage and near real-time measurements in the Earth observation field.

10.
Fully Funded PhD Position in computational study

Summary of PhD Program:

The destructive effects of current and emerging exploding threats are routinely reported from current conflicts around the world. Protective structures and platforms, commonly consisting of materials such as High Hard Steel (HHS), are used to reduce the catastrophic effect of these threats. Although full scale blast trials are conducted to assess the protection level provided by a range of armour technologies against blast loading, the fundamental cause of brittle failure during overmatch is not well understood.
