Civil infrastructure moitoring

Costain

Our civil infrastructure, e.g. roads, railways and utility grids, needs constant monitoring to guarantee optimal functionality. Developing accurate, reliable and cost effective sensors and the efficient analysis of the recorded data are main aspects of current research and development in this area.

In collaboration with Costain, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications is inviting applications for a fully funded 4-year PhD studentship commencing in October 2015 to advance the science of sensors for civil infrastructure applications. This project is in collaboration with the Department of Engineering and potentially its Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction.
