PhD candidates are invited for the RMIT University PhD Scholarship in Computational Design which will be enrolled within RMIT’s School of Architecture and Design, undertaking a hybrid model of research that brings together design and technical innovation. The research will focus on an iterative series of speculative design projects through a process of feedback in which the evaluation of each project is an input into the design and conception of the subsequent project.
This PhD scholarship is available for candidates to undertake research in generative design and the fabrication of complex geometries, with a focus on computational design, as part of the RMIT Boeing Research Alliance.
Value and duration of The RMIT University PhD Scholarship in Computational Design
Up to $40,000 per annum for 3 years with possible six month extension:
- $30,000 per year funded by the School of Architecture and Design, RMIT University
- $10,000 per year top up scholarship from Boeing.
If selected candidate is international the School of Architecture and Design will provide full tuition fee waiver and Overseas Health Cover (OSHC) for duration of candidature.
Number of scholarships available
A second related scholarship focused on Robotic Fabrication and Complex Geometry is available.
Please contact Dr Roland Snooks for more information.
