Study for a PhD with the UK’s leading Universities in Wind and Marine Energy Research Centre and become qualified to contribute to this dynamic and fast growing sector.
The UK Wind and Marine Energy Research Centre, a collaboration between Universities of Strathclyde and Edinburgh, are pleased to offer 10 prestigious 4 year EPSRC research studentships for talented engineering or physical science graduates to undertake a PhD in wind and marine energy research.
Successful students will join the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine Energy Systems, which is jointly hosted by these national centres of excellence. Accreditation of the provided at the CDT by the IET and IMechE enables students to develop professionally throughout the course and gain all the competencies required for Chartership.
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:
- Electrical Engineering
