The University of Mauritius is offering an MPhil/PhD Scholarship as part of the funding provided by the Higher Education Commission for the project titled “A mesoscopic simulator for the optimization of Light Rail Transit Systems”.

Programme Objectives:-

  • One of the objectives set for the aforementioned project is to conduct PhD level research for the development of a novel multi-objective nature-inspired model/algorithm for the optimisation of operations (scheduling, cost, emission, Light Rail Vehicle Motion, passenger flows at stations) for light rail transit (LRT) systems. 

  • The beneficiary of this scholarship will have to undertake the following core activities during his/her MPhil/PhD study:

    • Carry out profound literature reviews in the field of multi-objective optimisation algorithms, Nature Inspired

    • algorithm, Constrained Optimisation, Computational Intelligence, and light rail transit.

    • Conduct experimentations, observations, and surveys.

    • Analyse models, datasets and simulation results.

    • Develop, test and validate a novel optimisation algorithm/model for LRT operations.

    • Publish research papers in internationally peer-reviewed journals during the scholarship.

    • Do oral presentations at seminars/workshops/conferences.

    • Prepare and submit progress reports, MPhil transfer report and PhD Thesis.


Applicants must hold at least an Upper Second-Class Honours Degree in Computer Science/ Information Systems/ Applied Computing/ Software Engineering/ Mathematics/ Physics/ Engineering, or related fields, from a recognised institution.
