Name of scholarship/program

IDCORE offers a four year EngD (Engineering Doctorate) programme

Important description
Industrial Doctorate 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. The Centre is funded by the ETI and the RCUK Energy programme.

IDCORE offers a four year EngD (Engineering Doctorate) programme

Research Engineers (EngD students) follow a programme based on three elements:

postgraduate-level training
transferable skills and engineering leadership
As a Research Engineer you will spend your first two terms of the four-year programme attending intensive 12 taught courses delivered by internationally renowned academic staff from the Universities of Edinburgh, Strathclyde and Exeter at the University of Edinburgh. These first two terms provide you with the skills needed to survive within an industry environment and to get started on your research activities. You will be taught by staff from across the consortium and experts from industry. Practical courses will teach you important laboratory and fieldwork skills. While a group design project will help you to develop team working skills and use knowledge gained during the taught programme.
You will be matched with a research project in offshore wind, wave or tidal energy proposed by industry at the beginning of the second semester of teaching. Following the initial period in Edinburgh you will join your sponsoring company to work as a researcher for the rest of the programme. Your industrial research will be supplemented by summer schools delivered in Oban, Wallingford and Falmouth; and integrated studies in management, business, innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship, delivered online to maximise their relevance to your experience within your company.

At the end of your research work you will deliver either a doctoral thesis or a portfolio of related project work that will be examined for the award of an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Offshore Renewable Energy which will be a joint degree from the Universities of Edinburgh, Exeter and Strathclyde.
