Course content

The Industrial Doctoral 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.

IDCORE offers a four-year EngD (Engineering Doctorate) programme based on three elements: postgraduate level training, transferable skills and engineering research leadership. The EngD is a four-year 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.
