Program description

Awarded by: The University of Edinburgh

The Industrial Doctoral Centre for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE) is a partnership of the Universities of Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Exeter, together with the Scottish Association for Marine Science and the research association HR Wallingford.

IDCORE’s four-year engineering doctorate programme is a doctoral-level research and training programme, equivalent in academic standing to a conventional PhD, but achieved through research that is much more industrially focused.

It is designed to produce graduates who have a sound understanding of the business implications of industrial research. EngD students follow a programme based on three elements:

Our research accelerates the deployment of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current technologies, positioning the UK to meet its 2020 and 2050 targets for renewable energy generating capacity.

You will be undertaking a project that tackles a genuine commercial problem in a real-world environment, and offering the chance to develop thorough research and commercial skills. Projects are proposed by the offshore renewable energy companies. Project areas are agreed between the sponsoring companies and the IDCORE management in order to ensure that your work meets the standards needed for the award of an EngD. Students are matched with a research project at the beginning of the second semester of teaching programme (in January).
