PhD research student applications are welcomed by the BSEL Research Group all year round. Research students are valued members of our thriving, research-intensive team. We are particularly interested in supervising students' research in any of the broad range of topics listed below. Please note that the topic list is not exhaustive, so feel free to contact a member of BSEL with your ideas.
Some candidate PhD topics that group members are interested in supervising in the future may include, but are not limited to:
- Software Architecture
- Software Fault Analyses
- Understanding of Defects in Software
- Refactoring and Bad Smells
- Effort Estimation in Software Projects
- Search Based Software Engineering
- Human Aspects of Software Engineering
- Metrics and Patterns in Software Projects
- Data Analytics for Software Engineering
