Offshore Renewable Energy

Led by the University of Exeter at its Cornwall Campus and based at the University of Edinburgh, this EngD programme is delivered through a partnership with the universities of Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Exeter together with the Scottish Association for Marine Science and HR-Wallingford. This internationally-leading joint EngD with IDCORE aims to meet the UKs ambitious deployment targets for offshore renewable energy technologies. The programme will allow you to receive postgraduate-level technical and transferable skills training at three leading UK universities in the renewable energy research field together with the Scottish Association for Marine Science and HRWallingford. This university and industry collaboration forms the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), RCUK Energy programme/ETI-funded Industrial Doctorate Centre in Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE). This degree is professionally accredited under licence from the Engineering Council. Visit the Professional accreditation webpage for further information. Students will benefit from a vibrant learning environment and, in partnership with industry, will learn to deliver world-class industrially-focused research outcomes that will accelerate the deployment of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current technologies. This will help the UK to meet its 2020 and 2050 targets for renewable energy generating capacity, and expand and sustain a community of high-quality post-doctoral staff for the UK offshore renewable energy industry. This programme will produce highly trained scientists and engineers, they will gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to tackle current and future offshore renewable energy challenges. This includes developing new techniques and technologies to design, build, install, operate and maintain devices in hostile environments at an affordable economic cost with minimal environmental impact.
