Studying PhD of modeling and understanding induction heating for additive manufacturing at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom:
The course provides students with the opportunity to study additive manufacturing (AM) on a large scale using metal wire as a raw material. The aim is to innovate in the process of directed energy deposition by controlling higher production rate and thermal condition. AM is a fast-growing technology which incorporates many innovations and applications in the automobile, aerospace, and energy industries. One of the most important types of AM is wire-based DED.
During the course, students will examine key influential factors in the induction heating process, inductor system design optimization, induction heating process optimization, and model validation experiments, with the aim of developing an induction heating model for the application of wire-based DED.
Knowledge and skills presented in the course include:
- Induction heating simulation and validation experiment
- Requirements, techniques, and applications of metal AM
- Finite element analysis method
- Research planning and management, teamwork, writing technical report, reviewing literature, presenting in meetings and conferences, and more.
Students will be based at WELPC. The center is known for its rolling technology development program on large-scale AM and its research on advanced fusion-based processing and manufacturing methods. Students will enjoy a professional, focused, and dynamic environment and become part of the Cranfield Doctoral Network. The network is made up of research staff and students and provides a platform for researchers to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment and share their ideas. The purpose of forming the network is to encourage a dynamic and effective research culture based on knowledge and diversity of activities. The transferable skills curriculum, along with a dedicated program of events and seminars, provides students with the opportunity to network and gain social opportunities.
Admission requirements of doctoral degree in modeling and understanding induction heating for additive manufacturing:
This course is offered in both PhD and MSc by Research. Students can enter the course to take any of these qualifications, which are held full-time. Successful completion of the PhD course takes three years and the MSc by Research course takes one year.
To study this field, students need a first or second class UK honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline. This course is suitable for those who are interested in modeling, manufacturing, electromagnetism, and heat transfer. Students are expected to have a background in AM or thermal process. They are expected to be interested in industrial research, have excellent communication skills, and be self-motivated.
Language requirements of doctoral degree in modeling and understanding induction heating for additive manufacturing:
To study the course, students must demonstrate their ability to communicate in English. They can apply for one of the Cranfield’s EAP courses, if they do not meet expectations of the English language arrival. The expiration date for the exams is only two years of the course start date. Combination of scores in two or more tests is not accepted, all elements of test results must be shown in one test. All test scores are checked with test providers. Applicants must have at least IELTS 7 (5.5 in all skill components), TOEFL IBT 100 (reading at least 18, listening at least 17, writing at least 17, speaking at least 20), Pearson PTE 68 (59 in all skill components), Cambridge Assessment English 190 (160 in all skill components), overall pass in Trinity College London, or overall pass in Language Cert (33 in all skill components).
