university-of-southern-denmark-phd-fellowships-for-international-students

 

The University of Southern Denmark is inviting applications for CFEI PhD Fellowship for international students to study in Denmark. Applicants are required to have a master in engineering or equivalent at the time of employment.

The aim of the fellowship is to provide financial aid to international students.

The University of Southern Denmark welcomed the first students onto the campus in Odense in September 1966, and things have been developing by leaps and bounds ever since. We now have five faculties with more than 32,000 students, almost 20% of whom are from abroad, and more than 4,000 employees distributed across our main campus in Odense and regional campuses in Slagelse, Kolding, Esbjerg, and Sønderborg. Several international studies document that we conduct world-class research and are one of the top fifty young universities in the world.

Scholarship Description: 

  • Application Deadline: May 13, 2018
  • Course Level: Fellowships are available to pursue PhD programme.
  • Study Subject: The application must include a brief research plan of no more than 3 pages, indicating the candidates expected research for the coming 3-year period. This should include motivation, state of art, research hypothesis, proposed methodology, and expected results. The proposed research plan must address a research problem within one of the centre’s strategic research areas or current projects, and indicate the applicants’ competence to execute the research plan.

In addition to the general proposals described above, we invite specific proposals relating to ongoing research projects:

  • Modelling ventilation system with phase change material based climate module for increasing system efficiency and flexibility, The project aims to significantly increase energy efficiency and flexibility of standard ventilation systems by use of phase change based climate modules. It is the hypothesis that such phase change modules can improve energy flexibility and provide large capabilities of demand response, peak load shifting and management. The PhD project will develop an overall energy model for the proposed PCM-based ventilation system considering various functional and operational parameters, to aid system design and size as well as the selection of the proper phase change material. In addition, the model will serve as a backbone to develop a reliable controller and implement advanced control strategies to reduce peak power while still maintaining thermal comfort and good indoor air quality. The PhD research is part of the research project NeGeV.
  • Framework for the optimal combination of models and optimization schemes for model predictive control, The project will target the issue of application of various types of models (grey- and black-box) and optimization methods (gradient-based, evolutionary, stochastic) in relation to MPC in buildings, districts and grids. The PhD research is part of the center’s contribution to IBPSA Project 1.
  • Multi-agent based modelling and simulation for the smart energy sector,
    The project will target the development of a multi-agent based model of the smart energy sector and use this model to investigate how influential factors relating to climate, environment, social behaviour, technology, economics, policy and regulations affect the smart energy evolution. The PhD research contributes in general to the assessment of business models for the smart energy solutions developed in the center’s ongoing research projects, and in particular to the EU Interreg project IoTStyring
  • End-to-end cybersecurity in smart energy systems,
    The project will address cybersecurity issues related to end-to-end cybersecurity in the smart energy sector. In particular,  the project will focus on cybersecurity issues for integration of Smart Buildings with the Smart Grid. The PhD research is part of the EU Interreg project IoTStyring.
  • AI and Big Data drove decision support tools for energy efficient horticulture production,
    The project will address the application of AI and Big Data methods in the development of decision support tools for increasing the energy-efficiency of greenhouse cultivation while guaranteeing crop yield and quality. This PhD project is part of the EU Interreg project SmartGreen.

How I Can Mentor You To Win A Full Master’s Scholarship In Sweden

how-i-can-mentor-you-to-win-a-full-masters-scholarship-in-sweden

 

Since I wrote my last article here on how I won a full scholarship for Masters in Sweden, I’ve received a lot of messages from prospective candidates who are interested in getting to know how I did it and how I can help them win it. Unfortunately, if you have not yet applied for the Master’s in Sweden for Autumn 2018 admission, I think it’ll be too late to start now because the deadline for applying for Masters was January 15, a few weeks ago.

The timeline for the current application round is as follows:

October 17, 2017 – Masters application opened at University Admissions

January 15, 2018 – Deadline for selecting Master’s programmes

February 1, 2018 – Deadline for paying the application fee and submitting required documents

February 2, 2018 – Applications open for Swedish Institute Study Scholarship

February 9, 2018 – Applications for SI Scholarship closes

April 6, 2018 –  Admission results published

April 26, 2018 – List of scholarship recipients published.

Fortunately, you don’t need to worry because you already know about it, and can begin preparing yourself for when the next call for applications will be made, most likely later in the year.

For the past few months, I’ve been mentoring some candidates who are applying in the current round for the scholarship, and it’s been a fulfilling experience for me, and I’m motivated to mentor more candidates for the next round of the scholarship. So, you have a whole year of mentoring from me on how to win a full Master’s scholarship in Sweden, if you intend to sign up. I also prepared for about a year before I applied for the scholarship, and this involved “stalking” any website that had to do with Sweden and education in Sweden. This included websites like studyinsweden.se, thelocal.se, si.se/en/apply/scholarships/swedish-institute-study-scholarships-siss/, etc. I will advise you to also start “stalking” these websites and any other one you discover that talks about studying in Sweden, including Allscholarships.info. I also prepared myself by contacting about 9 recipients of the scholarship at that time, and I really learned a lot from their experience. I’m a current holder of the scholarship that is willing to help you and you can sign up your email address here (http://bit.ly/2A4DgWO) to receive tips and updates from me by email.

One very important thing I mentioned in my last article was the fact that academic achievement does not play a significant role in the selection of scholarship winners. The most important things are work experience and leadership experience. The Swedish Institute usually requires at least 3000 hours of work experience. How do you calculate the number of hours you’ve worked for totally? Follow this step. How many hours do you work in a week? How many weeks do you work for in a year? And how many years have you worked for? Now multiply the three numbers; the number of hours, the number of weeks and the number of years. This work experience doesn’t have to be from paid work, it could be an internship, volunteering, part-time employment, either during your university studies or after university studies. As for the leadership experience, it could be through previous work experience, through position as chairman or board member at student unions or student organisations, through involvement in civil society organisations, or volunteer assignments after high school studies, or maybe you’ve had the responsibility of organizing events, raising funds; all these experiences can count as leadership experience. Leadership experience can also be the experience of leading other colleagues/ organizations, a mandate to influence the development strategy for the organization you work at, allocate tasks to colleagues and familiarity with decision-making processes. If you don’t have any of these, you have the whole year to gain the experience. It doesn’t have to be from a job, you can volunteer for causes focused on societal development in your community. The leadership experience has no requirement in regards to the minimum number of hours.

So, who wants to join my mentorship group? Sign up here…http://bit.ly/2A4DgWO

By the way, watch out for more posts from me on this website as this will also serve as a mentoring channel for me.
