Funding opportunity for M.S. and Ph.D. students

M.S. and Ph.D. research positions are available for HEC NRPU funded research project titled “Identification of Losses in a Gas Distribution Network through Reduced Order Modeling and Simulation”, starting immediately (April/May 2019). The proposed research involves modeling of gas distribution networks, their computationally efficient analysis through the use of model order reduction techniques and validation of the simulation results through actual data. Developing model order reduction algorithm is an important task of the project, which is crucial for the simulation, control, and optimization of large-scale models. The scope of the project is diverse in that it covers multiple areas including (but not limited to) modeling and simulation, gas networks analysis and design, model order reduction and computational methods for control.

The potential candidates must already be enrolled (or will enroll in fall 2019) in MS or PhD program at NUST, and will work under the supervision of the Principal Investigator of the project. The last date of application is 5 May 2019.

The requisite qualification and responsibilities for the positions are given below:-
