MRIT University is delighted to offer the new doctoral scholarships for both Australian and overseas students. This call is available in the field of Computational Design Architecture). The PhD scholarships in Computational Design at RMIT University is part of the RMIT Boeing Research Alliance. Apply today if interested!
RMIT has a global reputation for excellence in both vocational and professional education, applied research as well as engagement with the needs of the community and industry. This University is one of the original tertiary institutions in Australia. Students have the opportunity to leave their mark on the world through a distinctive study experience tailor-made for them.
This year, the University is offering a generous scholarship call for incoming graduate students. Qualified students will embark on a research that will be undertaken as part of a bigger collaborative research project which will involve three main areas of expertise namely, robotic fabrication, computational design and material innovation. Latest developments in generative or computational design techniques as well as robotic fabrication will be leveraged in order to evaluate the relationship of surface, structure or services through the design of innovative geometries.
The research, therefore, will include an exploration of embedding fibre-composite structural elements in 3D printed geometry, printing geometries to allow for complex networks of structure and services embedded in surfaces or skins, etc.
The scholarship is worth $40,000 annually and will be tenable for three years (with the possibility of six month extension). The $30,000 value of the scholarship will be given per year and is funded by the School of Architecture and Design while the remaining $10,000 is from Boeing.
Should the chosen candidates are overseas students then the School of Architecture and Design will also grant full tuition fee waiver along with OSHC for the whole study duration as part of the benefits of the PhD scholarships in Computational Design at RMIT University.
- Candidates must have obtained a Master of Architecture or its equivalent qualification such as an accredited B.Arch Hons
- Candidates must be able to provide proof of good oral and written communication skills
- Candidates must be able to demonstrate ability to work as a part of a multi-disciplinary research team
- Candidates must be able to meet the entry requirements for the Higher Degree by Research program
Should you be interested in applying for this call, please forward these materials to Dr Roland Snooks:
- Design portfolio
- Three references
- Academic transcripts
- A CV
Prospective students will then be required to submit an admission application to the PhD (Architecture and Design)
Shortlisted students will receive an interview invitation with both Boeing and RMIT University.
Kindly note that scholarship submissions will only be successful provided the prospective students have an offer for admission. There is no specific closing date for the PhD scholarships in Computational Design at RMIT University as applications will only be closed once the University has found the qualified students.
