Bath student offered James Dyson Foundation scholarship
Final year student Chris Lusty from the Department of Mechanical Engineering has been chosen to receive the James Dyson Foundation scholarship.
Chris has just completed his final year studying MEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering. The scholarship will allow Chris to continue his studies to PhD level, offering three years fully-funded tuition as well as support with living costs.
With the support of the scholarship, Chris will undertake a project that seeks to extend current limits of both performance and active rotor systems. Chris explains his research proposal, which will start in October.
“The research will support the development of devices with higher power density than is currently possible, offering significant advantages in a wide range of fields including power generation and high speed manufacturing, as well as weight-critical applications in the aerospace and automotive industries.”
The James Dyson Foundation said they were particularly impressed with Chris’s passion for control engineering, his ability to talk enthusiastically and clearly explain his ideas.
The James Dyson Foundation funding totals £1million across five universities over the next few years and aims to encourage young people to pursue their interests in design and engineering.
