|The Lanchester Trust Aeronautical Engineering Scholarship (MScR)
The Lanchester Trust will sponsor one Masters Degree student to study in depth, the aeronautical engineering works from the 1890s of Dr Frederick Lanchester. Extensive research into Lanchester's original patents and documentation together with validation of his original calculations in the light of current aeronautical knowledge should support the creation of a working model of his patented invention. This would be of significant importance to aeronautical history.
This new scholarship will offer £3,840 to a Master by Research student (MScR), commencing their employment in the academic year of 2014/2015.
Candidates will only be considered if they have obtained a Minimum of a Bachelor Degree, in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering having achieved the class of upper second (2.1) or higher.
Applicants should provide their CV, Cover Letter and 2000 word essay to Dr. Caroline Lambert before the 29th August 2014.
The 2000 word essay should be written on the subject of Fredrick Lanchester’s contribution towards aerodynamics.
