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 Energy Technologies Institute and the RCUK Energy programme.
IDCORE offers a four year EngD (Engineering Doctorate) programme. The EngD is a doctoral level research and training programme equivalent in academic standing to a conventional PhD but is achieved through research which is much more industrially focused and which is designed to produce graduates who have a sound understanding of the business implications of industrial research activity.
