Job Posting - PhD position in engineering design – University of Auckland, New Zealand

Published:

An opportunity is available to study for a PhD in engineering design at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. The research aims to develop modelling methods to help designers explore possible solutions to a design problem, and to arrive at better designs. The PhD candidate will focus on a particular application domain, which will be selected from mechanical engineering or systems engineering. They will develop methods to model a generic design problem in the selected domain, alongside the main constraints on possible solutions and selected aspects of design performance. Algorithms will be developed to search the set of possible solutions to find feasible alternatives. The research may consider approaches to help designers visualize and...
