The UK is committed to the use of offshore wind energy to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The Aura CDT enables delivery of this target by developing environmental and engineering solutions to key OSW sector challenges, supporting a sustainable future.
The Aura CDT is led by the Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull with partner universities Durham, Newcastle and Sheffield. It integrates the core strengths of each institution in environment, engineering and energy and also works closely with over 20 international industry partners. Students have both an academic supervisor and an industry link, giving access to world-leading research and development facilities in both environments.
Your research could make a real impact to the environmental and engineering challenges facing the offshore wind industry. All research is developed to meet industry need and we also offer Industry Scholarships, where the research proposal is predefined by a supervising industry partner. As well as our Core Scholarship programme, we are currently offering an Industry Partner Scholarship with LaVision, market leaders in imaging and sensor systems for industry. For all our scholarships, we seek high quality, innovative people whose backgrounds, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our existing team.
