The university of Kent offers PhD Studentship in Engineering and Digital Arts for the 2016 academic year. The aim of the project is to investigate innovative designs of three-dimensional antennas and electromagnetic structures which can be fabricated using additive manufacturing techniques.
Applicants must have a first degree or Master’s degree in electrical/electronic engineering, physical sciences or related areas relevant to the PhD topic.
Course Level: Funding is available for PhD degree programme.
Study Subject: Funding is available in within Schools of Engineering and Digital Arts.
Title: Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing for the Development of Innovative Antenna Technology
Worth of Award
Funding is available at the current home fee rate of £4,121. There will also be combined maintenance funding of £14,296.
Looking for an excellent student with a strong first degree or Master’s degree in electrical/electronic engineering, physical sciences or related areas relevant to the PhD topic. Experience in antenna or RF design and testing is desirable, but not essential. Principally based in Kent, it is also expected that the student will develop a close relationship with the industrial partner and be involved in fabrication and testing in the facilities operated by the industrial partner from time to time.
