This project will focus on the use of computer science and vision techniques to develop an image-based multi-parameter data collection system to monitor infrastructure earthworks, bridges and other infrastructure assets. It will build upon the work currently being carried out at the University using structure-from-motion and close range photogrammetry. This project will focus on adding intelligence and accuracy to the observed images and point clouds through image analysis techniques such as: model based object recognition and identification, segmentation, 3D modelling from point clouds, advanced visualization, and potentially other computer science techniques such as automated reasoning and machine learning.
The student will have the possibility to spend short visits at the University of Udine, Italy, under the supervision of Professor Andrea Fusiello.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
Applications are invited from candidates with or expecting a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2:1), or equivalent, in a Science, Technology. and Engineering or Maths related subject.
Value: The studentship, which is open to UK/EU students in the first instance, will pay the full tuition fees at £4,000 (TBC), as well as providing an annual maintenance of £14,000 (TBC).
