EPSRC CDT in Future Propulsion and Power Studentships

We have funding for a number of 4-year PhDs, in collaboration with industry, on net zero propulsion and power under the following research themes:

  • Systems modelling of future net zero flight and energy pathways
  • Aero-thermal design of propulsion and power technologies
  • Thermodynamic analysis and development of net zero flight and energy cycles
  • Data Science and multi-disciplinary modelling and optimization
  • Novel propulsors systems and aircraft configuration
  • Thermal systems for new propulsion systems and zero carbon fuels (including hydrogen)
  • High pressure and high temperature turbine research for ultra-efficient jet engines
  • Advanced modelling of particle deposition and ice accretion for next generation, ultra-efficient aviation engines
  • Multi-physics approach to studying the complex aerodynamic and thermodynamic processes in future engines with net zero fuels
  • Advanced numerical (CFD) and experimental techniques for the study of reacting flows.
  • Following completion of a taught MRes in Future Propulsion in Power at the University of Cambridge, students will then undertake a PhD at one of the partner universities; Cambridge, Loughborough and Oxford.

    Be part of the next generation of engineers helping to create a sustainable future for aviation and power generation with a PhD in Future Propulsion and Power For general enquiries, please email Sara Horsfield (turbocdt- [email protected])

    Studentships are fully-funded (fees and maintenance) for eligible UK students. EU and international students may be considered for a small number of awards at the UK rate. Full eligibility criteria can be found via the following link; https: // www. postgraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/finance/fees/what-my- fee-status

    Applications should be submitted for the PhD in Engineering via the University of Cambridge Applicant Portal https: // www. postgraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/egegpdpeg with Professor Andrew Wheeler identified as the potential supervisor.

    The University actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society.
