Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering that concentrates looks into design, production and usage and operation of machines. Mechanical engineering study field aims to analyze, manufacture and design mechanical systems. This study field uses concepts of material theory and physics. Mechanical engineering includes kinematics, dynamics, thermodynamics, structural science, material analysis, physics, etc. Graduates can mainly work in manufacturing firms in public or private sector, research institutions of business environment.
This challenging and interdisciplinary research field covers the following subtopics: Advanced Ceramic Sciences / Structure and Process Analysis / Fundamentals of Mass Transport in Porous Ceramics and its Visualization / Modelling and Simulation / Special Application of Porous Ceramics
Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Tribology, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The post is supported by a bursary and fees (at the UK/EU student rate only) provided by our industrial partners. The studentship is for three years from July 2013.
The main objective of this PhD programme is to provide its graduates high quality education and research standards, enabling them to develop independent (fundamental or applied) research work that pushes forward the state of the art, in academia and industry.
The PhD programme in Leaders for for the Technical Industries links high quality education to an innovative curriculum, to promote a new entrepreneurial attitude towards knowledge-based manufacturing and competitive product development. This program is offered as part of the MIT-Portugal initiative.
The medical technology industry is a critically important industry internationally and is one of the pillars of the Irish economy, with a tremendous potential for growth, which is dependent on having a highly educated and trained workforce and a strong research and innovation capability. Biomedical engineering and regenerative medicine are at the heart of this growth potential and this structured PhD programme is designed to produce graduates who will be the next generation of leaders in the industry and in academic research and education in the field.
Postgraduates on the MPhil/PhD programme in Engineering at Cardiff can pursue research across a wide range of areas via the School's seven multidisciplinary research institutes. Within these Institutes are a number of research groups working across the three engineering disciplines of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering on major research themes such as Energy, Environment, Health, Communication, Security and Materials.
The graduates are research, scientific and managerial workers with complex education who can deal with a broad scale of problems concerning materials used in mechanical engineering, processing technologies (machining, forming, casting, welding) as well as tool and machine design for these technologies. They have knowledge of the application of classical and non-traditional processing technologies and they have mastered modern ways of research, using problem simulation on the models, for which they can verify the boundary and initial conditions in order to obtain the required precision of solution. They can work in research organizations and in the management of engineering enterprises as well as in the sphere of technical and quality control.
The graduates from the Production Quality study program possess knowledge in tool application and planning methods, ensuring and management of production quality. They have mastered scientific methods of management and the philosophy of a complex approach to quality management (TQM); have acquired the principles of independent and team work. They are able to analyze existing, and design new, progressive processes of quality improvement, and to implement quality management systems within the Standards STN EN ISO 9001:2001 or other models (EFQM and others). They can work in applied research and the development of new processes and products, as well as in top management. As quality managers or auditors they find application in all areas of economic life connected with marketing planning and quality control - personnel management.
The graduates acquire university qualifications in the third degree of education in the sphere of scientific problems concerning fluid flows, the energy transformation of fluid and processes in fluid machinery and equipment. Acquired theoretical knowledge in mathematics, continuum mechanics, fluid mechanics, hydrodynamic and hydrostatic machine, biofluid mechanics and their experimental methods, with their independent application in the solution of technical problems. In the theses they solve scientific problems, with a corresponding scientific contribution, in the area of hydropower engineering, pumping technology, power hydraulics and pneumatics and in microfluid technology and biofluid technology, too. They can work in research organizations and in the manufacturing, operations and project of engineering enterprises as well as in the sphere of hydropower plants control.
The goal of the study programme is to provide a specialised university education in certain fields of computer science and information technology, including especially the areas of information systems, computer-based systems and computer networks, computer graphics and multimedia, and intelligent systems. The education obtained within this study programme also comprises a training and attestation for scientific work.
Graduate students are awarded the M.Sc. degree in Materials Science and Technology after completing the required programme of study, passing the Comprehensive Examination and successfully defending and writing their Ph.D. thesis.
The graduates acquire university qualifications in the third degree of education in the sphere of scientific problems concerning the procurement, treatment, transformation, transport, accumulation, distribution and consumption of various forms of energy based on using and utilizing fossil fuels and renewable forms of energy. In their theses they solve a scientific problem, with a corresponding scientific contribution, in the area of a wide spectrum of energetics (thermal power engineering, hydro power engineering, pumping technology, nuclear power engineering, metallurgy power engineering, VHAC (ventilation, heating, air conditioning), compressed air technology, heating systems, gas systems, combustion turbines, cogeneration devices, combustion engines, steam turbines, heating plants, electric power plants, non-traditional energy sources, heat pumps, refrigerating technology, energy economy, design, control).
