The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine Energy Systems is a collaboration between the Universities of Strathclyde and Edinburgh. It is pleased to offer 10 EPSRC research studentships for talented engineering or physical science graduates to undertake a 4 year PhD in wind and marine energy research.
Students will follow an initial year of training delivered together by academics from these national centres of excellence, followed by three years of research in co-operation with industry, supported by experts in the field. The CDT programme has been accredited by the IET and IMechE, enabling students to use their time to develop professionally and personally and gain all competencies required to become Chartered Engineers.
Our CDT offers a unique programme, combining training and research which will aid graduates in transitioning into careers in the wind and marine energy sector. With proven and rapidly growing international demand for highly qualified engineers and researchers, this course offers high level training which is attractive to industries. To prepare for this exciting future, graduates will work closely with manufacturers, developers and researchers. This multidisciplinary programme brings together graduates from various science and technology disciplines to create a unique community of researchers. Training covers all aspects of wind and marine energy systems including the wider socio-economic context.
The Centre for Doctoral Training currently has students from the following backgrounds:
The PhD programme covers a number of disciplines that include:
Studentships are available to UK and eligible EU citizens with (or about to obtain) a minimum of a 2.1 or a Masters degree in Physical Science or Engineering. These Studentships will commence each year in October and will cover University fees and provide an attractive stipend.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm, creativity, resourcefulness, commitment to the industry and a mature approach to learning.
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine Energy Systems is committed to achieving and promoting equality of opportunity in its learning, teaching, research and working environments, and to ensuring these environments support positive relations between people, and a culture of respect.
