PhD and Masters Degrees by Research
The Centre welcomes applications from prospective Masters and PhD students. To be considered, you will need to be fully fluent in English and have achieved excellent results in your undergraduate studies. For example, an average grade of distinction in Australia, a GPA of more than 3.5 in the US and Canada, or a CPI of more than 8.6 in India.
Applications will be welcomed from those with a strong interest in computational mechanics, geotechnical engineering, geoenvironmental engineering, or materials science. Typically, our research students have undergraduate degrees in the disciplines of engineering, mechanical engineering, materials engineering, physics, or mathematics. A broad range of scholarships to support national and international students are available.
Two research higher degree scholarships are currenlty available as part of a four-year project funded by the Australian Research Council. The scholarships are for a period of 3 years initially, with possible extension for a further 6 months, and provide an annual living allowance of $24,653 (2013 rate, tax-free, indexed annually). Should the successful candidate be an international student, a matching tuition fee scholarship and overseas student health cover policy will also be provided (domestic students do not pay fees). Additional funding is available for computing equipment, relocation costs, conference travel and top up subject to satisfactory performance. Download PDF
