NTU Research Scholarships
The NTU Research Scholarship is awarded to outstanding
graduate students for research leading to a higher degree at the University.
The Scholarship consists of a monthly stipend plus a tuition fee subsidy.
Details available here.
Project 1: Microstructure control in metal additive
Supervisor: Assistant Professor Matteo
Interested applicants, please contact Assistant Professor Matteo
Seita at MSEITA@NTU.EDU.SG.
Dynamical responses of 3D printed structures with topological optimisation in
Supervisor: Assistant Professor Ng Bing
Project will investigate the
structural flexibility of 3D printed parts in UAVs, focusing on topological optimisation
to improve on structural performances. Project will involve both experimental
and numerical studies with wind tunnel testing of 3D printed parts to
understand the behaviour of 3D printed structures in
fluid-structure-interaction (FSI). The student will also be involved in
numerical analysis and topological layout of the structures to investigate the
optimum design parameters.
The student should possess a
relevant engineering degree with strong interest in 3D printing, UAVs or FSI.
Interested applicants, please contact Assistant Professor Ng Bing
Feng at BINGFENG@NTU.EDU.SG .
Project 3: 3D printing of hierarchical composites
Supervisor: Dr Hortense Le Ferrand
materials may be used as lightweight replacement but often lack the mechanical
and functional response of the structure they replace. Also, traditional long
fiber composite materials do not allow for the variety of shapes required form
most applications. By using 3DP of particulate suspensions, supplemented by
external forces such as vibration, electric or magnetic fields, composite
materials with intricate shapes and expected properties are aimed to be
fabricated. Orienting or positioning the particles into a hierarchical
structure could combine the structural and functional response desired.
of the PhD thesis will tackle both manufacturing and characterization.
in materials science or in mechanics is required, with interest in some of the
following areas: colloidal science, rheology, magnetic fields, microscopy,
fracture mechanics, bio-inspiration and robotics.
candidate should be able to work in an inter-disciplinary environment and be
enthusiast for learning and developing new skills.
Interested applicants, please contact Dr Hortense Le Ferrand at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interested applicants please send your full CV to the PI directly.
The CV should include education, experience, interests and the names and contacts of 2 referees.
