PhD topics and outlines

Testing of Optimal Prediction Software for Oil-Drilling Industries: Predicting an optimal time and resources for oil drilling depends on many natural elements and system parameters in the drilling such as casting, drill string, drill collar, mud circulation and bit factors. The project will investigate and analyse the existing oil drilling data to help designing test cases to test the drilling time prediction software.
