Welcome to IDCORE

Based within the leading UK offshore energy research Universities and Institutes, the IDCORE programme will train world-class industrially focussed research engineers who will, with the help of sponsoring companies, accelerate the deployment of offshore wind, wave and tidal-current technologies in order to meet the UK's ambitious offshore renewable energy targets.

This EngD is a four-year full time course initially based in Edinburgh and then at a sponsoring company. Potential applicants should be able to demonstrate: enthusiasm; resourcefulness; a mature approach to learning; creativity; a sound understanding of one or more branches of science or engineering; and possess either a first or upper second class honours degree. A scholarship that provides a student stipend and covers the tuition fees is available for suitably qualified applicants.
