Singapore: PhD Scholarships in Nanyang Technology University

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

A few scholarships in the area of mathematics, geometry and computer graphics
are available. They are a part of the *NRF* funded project entitled
“Visual and Haptic Rendering in Co-Space”. The work will be carried out
at the Centre for Advance Media Technologies (CAMTech) of Nanyang Technological University,
Singapore. The goal of the project is to propose an efficient
interoperable mathematical model defining geometry, visual appearance
and tangible physical properties of objects in *Co-Space*.

The object definitions must be small in size and invariant to the
rendering platform used in Co-Space. The particular goals of the
project include development of the fast interactive definitions by
implicit and explicit functions, description of complex geometry using
parametric partial differential equations, introduction of
function-defined physical properties to objects in Co-Space, and
development of several exemplar applications illustrating the usefulness of the proposed approach, including an ability
to establish physical contact with other party in Co-Space through haptic devices.


A good bachelor or master degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Electronics Engineering,
Mathematics or related-fields. Advance knowledge of mathematics,
geometry, physics and good programming skills. Evidence of the
experience will be required. Knowledge of one or more of the following
areas will be an advantage: 3D computer graphics, interactive computer
graphics, web visualization, web programming, parallel computing. Good
written and oral communication skills.

A few possible research topics can be found at*

Closing Date
The candidates are expected to start their projects in January or August 2009.


Best Regards,
Dr. Alexei Sourin
Associate Professor
School of Computer Engineering
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
