Commercial properties consume significant amounts of energy on heating and depend on relatively simple control systems. More advanced Smart Heating controls are now available for residential homes but are less common in commercial properties. The aim of this project is the development of a new boiler control system for commercial properties, with the aim of reducing energy consumption, carbon footprint and ongoing running costs.

This project will involve research and development to understand the range of technologies currently available, model system behaviours and develop control algorithms to implement the outcomes of research. It will also aim to discover new possibilities resulting from the inter-connection of IoT technologies, develop these into a commercial product and explore new approaches for complex systems with a focus on AI and machine learning.

This project would suit applicants with an engineering degree and programming experience, or a computer science graduate with a scientific leaning.

Enterprise and collaborative partners

This Masters by Research is a collaborative research project between Lancaster University, with supervision from Dr Peter Garraghan and Invisible Systems. Invisible Systems is a software and electronics design manufacturing company that focuses on energy saving, compliance and asset management via robust RF wireless monitoring and energy savings solutions with our realtime-online cloud software management portal.

This MSc is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and assessed by coursework and examinations. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring, quantifying and understanding the physical processes within the geological marine environment. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to decide how best to design and execute marine surveys, be they geophysical, sedimentological or geological, for the required purpose.

The MSc in Applied Marine Geoscience evolved from its predecessor, the Marine Geotechnics course which boasted a 30 year pedigree.

A series of modules have been designed to explain the processes that form and characterise a wide variety of sedimentary environments, from the littoral zone to the deep ocean. Those controls range from the dynamical, chemical, climatic to geological; all are inter-related. The student also gains knowledge and understanding of survey techniques in order to map these environments and thereby gain a better understanding of the processes that shape them. The final facet of the course involves an explanation of how these sedimentary materials react to imposed loads - how they behave geotechnically.

From past experience it is found that students on completion of the course will find employment in the offshore hydrocarbons industry, geophysical contract companies (both offshore and terrestrial), geotechnical engineering companies, river and harbour boards or government establishments. The course may also lead students to further academic research studies.

Aims of the course
The aim of the course is to provide the world with people who

understand the inter-relationships between the forces which shape the marine geological environment,
have mastered the practical and analytical techniques necessary to study those controls and survey the geological settings
can critically analyse their findings and present them at a standard and in a form required by end-users, be they commercial or academic.
Whilst the form and style of presentation of work may differ, the skills required by doctoral students and those by potential employers (the marine geoservices industry) overlap to a large extent. Specifically identifying aspects of the course in this light, we aim to enable the students to:

be skilled in planning and acquiring good quality data in the laboratory and in the field in a safe manner
be able to work as a team in the acquisition of larger data-sets
appreciate the importance of recognising the limitations of model-based interpretation of data
review and critically analyse previous work both before and after undertaking data acquisition or modelling
understand the fundamental workings of the offshore geoservices industry
In a more general sense, the course is designed to act as a conversion course for a physical scientist who wants to hone their research skills whilst at the same time getting a grasp of how those skills are applied to solve both academic and commercially based problems. An important part of the course philosophy is the idea that the challenges that face marine geoscientists can often only be solved by taking a multi-disciplinary approach and we instil this idea of wider thought into our graduates.

The course aims to place the student in a strong position to go on to doctoral studies on issues such as palaeoclimatology, geophysics or sedimentology; or enter directly into the offshore industry e.g. to geohazard analysis, or offshore renewable energy exploitation.

The master of science degree in mechanical engineering consists of a minimum of 30 credit hours (24 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of thesis). A limited number of credit hours may be transferred from graduate courses taken outside the university, provided such courses complement a student’s proposed graduate program in the mechanical engineering department. An adviser will review course work for possible transfer credit. Upon matriculation into the MS program, the student should formulate a plan of study in consultation with an adviser.

Plan of study

The program includes core courses, focus area courses, elective courses, and a thesis. All full-time and full-time equivalent students are required to attend the weekly graduate seminar each semester they are on campus.

- Focus area courses

All students must develop a focus area of study, with prior approval from their adviser and the department head. The focus area should consist of at least 9 credit hours of graduate study in mechanical engineering and be related to the student’s technical and professional development interests. Examples of focus areas include controls, thermo/fluids, and mechanics/design/materials.

- Independent study

A student also may earn a limited number of credits by doing an independent study with guidance from a member of the graduate faculty. Areas for independent study include selected topics in applied mathematics, mechanics, thermo-fluids, and controls.

- Thesis

Students prepare and present a formal thesis proposal to their faculty adviser prior to completing their course work. An acceptable proposal – including a statement of work, extensive literature search, and proposed timeline, signed by the student and approved by their faculty adviser and department head – is required before students can register for MSMS Thesis (MECE-790). Students are required to submit a written thesis and orally present their thesis work.

International Students

International applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
