PhD Projects SEIT
Scholarships of $35,000 (AUD) are available for PhD students who have achieved Honours 1/High Distinction in their UG program and/or have completed a Masters by Research.
The project is concerned with the development of mechanical analysis and design optimisation procedures formulated for composite materials, thin-walled and sandwich structures, hybrid metal-composite structural components with applications in aerospace, marine, offshore, shipbuilding and other industries.
The rise of the globalization of manufacturing industries has led to enhanced, decentralized or multi-factory supply chains, which are of considerable interest to both researchers and practitioners. Production scheduling and distribution decisions in decentralized supply chains have become more possible but is very complex—only a few research studies have addressed this problem so far.
Defence systems acquisition is fraught with all sorts of financial, technical and political risks. The most effective way of mitigating risks associated with acquisition of complex systems is through identification of these risks as early as possible. This project’s aim is to facilitate optimal decision making for multi stakeholder system design.
Broadband service providers receive many help‐desk calls because of networking issues in their customers' homes, and ever more of those are related to wireless technologies and security issues.
This project aims at identifying current state of the art human systems integration techniques and creation of framework for an overarching or generalized human system integration framework that can be substantiated for different kinds of systems. Human systems integration practices are very domain specific for example healthcare, defence, aerospace etc.
This project involves the use of laser-based methods to investigate time-dependent population distributions in laser-induced plasmas. Such plasmas have applications in fuel ignition studies, sterilisation and chemical treatment, but their fundamental behaviour is still very poorly understood, even in simple gases such as Argon.
In this program, computational structure/structure dynamics and model experiments will be integrated to study the structure dynamic responses, turbulence flows and local stresses with long-term goal of exploring clinic applications. There are more than 30,000 patients receiving artery related implants in Australia, incurring substantial cost for treating and nursing these patients.
UNSW Canberra is looking for talented researchers to join our team in solving challenging problems in Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Deep Learning and Network Dynamics for Cyber Deception working with the Cyber Security CRC – see https://www.cybersecuritycrc.org.au.
Understanding the aerodynamic interaction between Low Earth Orbit (LEO) objects and the space environment is essential for enabling precise orbit determination and prediction capabilities necessary for future space traffic management systems. Recent research at UNSW Canberra has shown that the charged aerodynamic interaction between Low Earth Orbit (LEO) objects and the ionosphere (i.e. ionospheric aerodynamics) is neither negligible nor well understood.
