The University College of Dublin or UCD is accepting fully funded Scholarship application for PhD in Civil Engineering. Further, the scholarship is available to both domestic as well as international students.
Moreover, the scholar will take up on accessing the indirect damage detection project through the use of AI and ML. Indirect health monitoring of a bridge is the process of assessing the condition of the structure by analyzing the vibration data measured on a passing vehicle. In this project, a machine learning approach will be developed for drive-by damage detection. Machine learning is a relatively unexplored concept in the field of indirect damage detection but shows the potential to account for operational and environmental effects on the bridge response signal. Such variables have previously been major obstacles to the success of indirect detection methods.
The PhD candidate will perform the following tasks:
The PhD candidate receiving the UCD Scholarship in Civil Engineering will receive a full exemption on tuition fees for the duration of the program (4 Years). In addition, the candidate will also receive €18,000 per annum to cover the living expenses.
University College Dublin considers the applicants (domestic and international) eligible for PhD Scholarship in Civil Engineering if they meet the following requirements:
To apply for the Scholarship at the University College Dublin, the PhD Candidates must be eligible for the program. Furthermore, the candidates must send the application along with a detailed CV, letter of motivation (max 2 pages, single-spaced), transcripts and the names of two referees via email to Ass. Prof. Abdollah Malekjafarian.
University College Dublin accepts the application for fully funded PhD Scholarship in Civil Engineering until 16 September 2019. Applications arriving after the deadline are ineligible for the scholarship.
