Studentship Design and Development of Next Generation tab-less Battery Prototypes at Coventry University in the UK for 2022/2023

The Studentship Design and Development of Next Generation tab-less Battery Prototypes are currently offered at Coventry University for suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded Ph.D. program. The role of battery energy storage in the change from fossil fuels to electrification in transport is important, with lithium-ion technologies seen as key in achieving the Road to Zero Strategy.

A step-change in the combination of battery technologies into automotive is underway, but challenges remain around range anxiety, re-fuel (charging) times, and cost, obstructing the adoption of electric vehicles by the wider public.

However, there have been important efforts to enhance battery performance through chemistries and materials used but little progress has been made in the engineering design of cells. Building on recent advances in cell design in the 4680 cells announced by Tesla, this project will further improve the concept of the continual tab cell by bringing together specialist expertise in battery prototyping (CEMR) and laser welding (CMM), both strengths at Coventry University to obtain and understand further enhancement in cell design allowing for higher power and energy through engineering.

The Studentship Design and Development of Next Generation tab-less Battery Prototypes offers a unique opportunity to gain a deep understanding and experience across all aspects of device development, from electrode development, through mechanical assembly, improved welding and, joining techniques, and, ultimately device performance and electrochemical testing.

Coventry University is a public research university in Coventry, England. The foundation of Coventry University can be linked to the founding of the Coventry School of Design in 1843. The university was known as Lanchester Polytechnic from 1970 until 1987, and then as Coventry Polytechnic until the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 afforded its university status that year and the name was changed to Coventry University.

The university is the larger of the two universities in the city, the other being the University of Warwick. Coventry University is the UK’s fastest-growing university and the country’s sixth-largest overall, being the fourth largest outside of London.

Coventry University has two principal campuses: one in the center of Coventry where the majority of its operations are based, and one in Central London which focuses on business and management courses. The university also governs their other higher education institutions CU Coventry, CU Scarborough, and CU London, all of which market themselves as an alternative to mainstream higher education.

In addition, the university‚Äôs four faculties, which are made up of schools and departments, run about 300 undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Across Coventry University, 11 research centers specialize in different fields, from agroecology and peace studies to the future of transport.  Coventry University gained a Gold in (TEF) in 2017. The university is a member of the University Alliance mission group.
