This scholarship provides funding for graduate-level study in the field of engineering at RMIT University in Australia, specifically in the area of robotics.
Applications are being accepted for a PhD Scholarship In Robotic Intelligence For Construction Waste Sorting at RMIT University in Australia in 2022. International students may apply for this program.
- HOST: RMIT University AustraliaLOCATION: Australia
- OFFERED SUBJECT: Engineering, Robotics
- LEVEL: PhD
- ELIGIBLE NATIONALITY: International Students
- TYPE: Partial Funding
- DEADLINE: 17 August 2022
Within the scope of this project, the DRL technique for construction waste grasping will be implemented, and furthermore, flexible and adaptable robotic grippers for waste handling will be designed. It’s possible that the robotic hands and grippers that are currently on the market for commercial use won’t be able to manage irregular and heavy construction waste in an unstructured setting. During the picking process, the gripper must be able to accommodate wastes of varying shapes and sizes and tolerate collisions brought on by the movement of the material. The touch and force sensors are able to lend a hand when it comes to controlling the gripper and the execution of the grasp in real-world settings.
The award will be in the amount of $31,885 per year and will be provided by RMIT University for a period of three years with the possibility of a six-month extension.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must meet one of the following requirements: have a Master by Research degree or a Master by Coursework degree with a significant research component graded as high distinction or equivalent; or have an Honours degree in civil/mechanical/manufacturing engineering or another appropriate field with a first-class honors achievement. Applicants with Australian citizenship or status as permanent residents of Australia, as well as on-shore international applicants, are given preference.
How To Apply:
All expressions of interest must include the following mandatory pieces of information:
- A cover letter that is one page long and briefly describes your interest in working on the project.
- Evidence of your ability to conduct research:
- a digital copy of the thesis for the master’s degree or the honors degree, as well as a digital copy of the student’s academic transcripts
- A curriculum vitae that details all relevant professional experience, as well as any relevant publications or awards.
