Summary

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Wind and Marine Energy Systems and Structures (WAMESS) is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and offered in partnership with the University of Oxford and Strathclyde.

The Centre's multi-disciplinary research teams are working closely with industry to help develop its global position in the field and meet ambitious renewable energy targets.

The Centre is committed to developing the new wave of highly skilled professionals needed to meet the energy challenge.

Recruiting graduates

The Centre is recruiting 70 graduates over 5 years.

The first intake started in October 2019.

This unique opportunity combines training and research to enable graduates to make the transition into the wind and marine energy sector - a rapidly expanding area in the UK and overseas, with an overwhelming demand for well-qualified people.

Aims and objectives

The overall aim of the Research Centre is to meet the needs of the fast-growing offshore wind, wave and tidal energy industry, by providing high caliber PhD and EngD graduates with the specialist, generic and leadership skills necessary to lead future developments in offshore energy systems.

The objectives are to ensure all students from different disciplines gain competencies in core aspects of offshore energy systems engineering and understand the socio-economic impact of these systems.
