PhD and MEng research opportunities
PhD and MEng research opportunities are available, especially for candidates that have achieved an undergraduate or postgraduate coursework degree GPA of at least 3.5 out of 4. Example topics available in priority order are:
- Passive Optical Networks. PhD candidates are sought for research into optimal techniques for traffic queuing, priority and scheduling over next generation passive optical networks. Advances in the development of hybrid WDM/TDM optical access networks provide the basis for investigating traffic flows across optical access networks operating at 100Gbps. Join a research team that is focusing on optimal framing and link layer techniques for multi-wavelength optical transmission.
- Mobile. PhD candidates are sought for research into next generation mobile cellular and wireless technologies including IMT-Advanced. The focus of the research is identifying optimal traffic flows, routing, security and authentication schemes. Hybrid fibre wireless systems are a current focus of research activity.
- Network Design, Management and Operations. The development of new queuing, routing, planning and design approaches for the next generation optical and wireless networks. The research includes the opportunity to participate in the development of a new multi-user web based network design and planning tool.
- Improving project management decision making through the integration of technical risk management models into project management systems. Candidate should have knowledge of project management principles and risk concepts.
- Online Tools for Engineering Education. MEng candidates are sought for research into the new approaches for engineering education utilising broadband networks and online tools.
