Offshore Renewable Energy (Industrial Doctorate Centre)

The Industrial Doctoral Centre for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE) is a partnership of the universities of Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Exeter, the Scottish Association for Marine Science and HR-Wallingford; this programme is based on 3 elements: postgraduate level training, transferable skills and engineering research leadership. The qualification is equivalent in academic standing to a conventional PhD but is achieved through research which is much more industrially focused and which is designed to produce graduates who have a sound understanding of the business implications of industrial research activity.

Entry requirements

The minimum entry requirement is a UK 1st Class degree, or its international equivalent; students with a 2.1 Honours degree and a subsequent MSc degree with distinction or substantial relevant work experience will also be considered; it is expected that candidates will have a good understanding of 1 or more branches of science or engineering and at least some relevant research experience; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE 61 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade C or CAE grade B.
