Description du sujet

TWO full Postgraduate Scholarships are available under Swinburne’s Automotive Engineering Graduate Program (AEGP) funded by Australia’s Department of Industry Innovation and Science.

Applications are invited for two postgraduate positions (PhD or Masters by Research) to work on two industry-linked R&D projects. 

Project 1 deals with the development of multifunctional coatings on high strength steel fasteners. Research will involve work on the materials microstructures/properties relationships, in particular the characterisation of the corrosion performance, including galvanic corrosion, of coatings deposited by mechanical plating process.

Project 2 deals with safety performance analysis of light vehicles collision repairs made with non-OEM specified impact resistant structural adhesive. Research will involve extensive numerical simulations and laboratory experimental work.

Both industry-linked projects uniquely combine materials, mechanical and manufacturing engineering, and design or modelling, which will qualify the selected candidates for an excellent career in automotive R&D industry, and/or academia.
