Swansea University PhD Scholarship for Computer Science and Engineering Industrial AI in UK 2022/2023

Are you interested in furthering an education in UK? Good news! Swansea University PhD Scholarship is currently ongoing an application for Computer Science/Engineering Industrial AI. In this article, we will explain more about the scholarship, its worth, eligibility and application process.

The steel industry produces surplus of 1.7bn tonnes of steel per year and accounts for ~10% of global carbon emissions. The Digitalization of industrial processes, driven by growth of low-cost wireless remote sensors and improves in data analytics, offer huge opportunities to enhance both energy and material competency for the steel industry and, reducing the environmental impact.

However, this research project will look at the application of novel sensors technologies, fused with physics informed AI models, in the hot strip mill at Port Talbot to form actionable perception during manufacture which will help the production of adaptable, guaranteed, right-first-time materials.

The research will be accepted collectively with the industry partner to inform and enhance management decision making to promote the hot strip mill. In addition, the core driver for this project is to promote both energy and material competency for the industry both of which will help to reduce the environmental impact of the process, a 1% material competency saving is the equivalent of 60,000 tonnes of CO.

The PhD Researcher will be associated to the Materials and Manufacturing Academy research community and be part of the Industrial AI and Data Modelling research group, located in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Swansea University.

The PhD Researcher will also work in connection to the Made Smarter Innovation – Materials Made Smarter Research Centre, a partnership of five UK leading universities like The Universities of Sheffield, UCL, Brunel, Cambridge, Nottingham and Swansea.

The research project focuses to integrate these new data streams with existing hot mill data, use different data analytics techniques joined with physical modelling to translate the data into useful information as well as work with the industry partner to understand the hot rolling process and in negotiating existing IT infrastructure on the plant.
