Swansea University in the UK – Fully Funded EPSRC Scholarship 2024

Swansea University in collaboration with EPSRC ICASE and Airbus Operations Limited are seeking undergraduate students who are willing to collaborate with scholars in a research project in the field of Biomedical Engineering.

Airbus’ Structures Test department is interested in continuously developing and refining an understanding of how materials and components behave when exposed to the cryogenic temperatures required to store hydrogen in its liquid form. The existing methods for instrumenting specimens for tests conducted at cryogenic temperatures are limited

The project will aim to develop novel approaches to enable the use of DIC during cryogenic mechanical testing and significantly advance the current instrumentation capabilities in preparation for testing the next generation aircraft.

Swansea University has been producing world class research since 1920. We have a long history of working with business and industry but today our research has a much wider impact, reaching across the health, wealth, culture, and well-being of a global society. We have achieved an extraordinary level of success in recent years with our research activity exceeding that of many larger universities. This, though, has not compromised the friendly and relaxed atmosphere that has always characterised the “Swansea experience”.

As we continue our journey as a 21st century University, we look forward to becoming a truly global institution, focusing on the big issues, and improving lives, while continuing to provide inspirational teaching.
