PhD and Masters Opportunities

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.

To express your interest, please email your CV, together with certified copies of your undergraduate transcripts and a brief statement of your research interests to:
