Project Title: Reducing carbon impacts within the PEMD(power, electronics, machine and drive) systems sector: case study Milliamp Technologies Ltd.
Applications are invited for a Master by Research (MRes) studentship in the Centre for Waste Management as part of the ERDF Eco I North West Project, within the School of Engineering at the University of Central Lancashire.
The studentship is 12 months full time and will start on the 1st July 2022. All costs associated with the programme are covered by ERDF Eco-I NW and UCLAN with the successful candidate being paid a stipend of £15,840.00 pa.
The 12-month research project will explore practices and technological solutions to reduce the carbon impacts within the PEMD (power, electronics, machines and drive) sector e.g electric vehicles. This will be carried out in partnership with Milliamp Technologies based in Lancaster, who will be used as the case study organisation. The research will support the business through knowledge transfer and help them to identify and prioritise the areas or barriers to becoming carbon neutral.
The successful candidate will be responsible for evaluating current practices and assisting the business to identify and prioritise the key areas to reduce their carbon footprint and start their journey to being companywide net-zero. Adopting a life cycle thinking approach, you will also explore other areas for reducing carbon impacts including costs associated and resource use in their products. The project will reduce the overall carbon footprint of the business, resulting in tangible carbon savings in terms of tonnes of GHG emissions.
We're looking for graduates with a Bachelor's degree in electrical/electronic engineering or a related field (classification 2:2 and above).
Closing Date: 12/06/22
