About

The Energy Systems programme offered by The University of Edinburgh covers all aspects of the low carbon energy chain: resource modelling, impact of climate change, wind, wave, tidal & solar energy, electrical power conversion, energy storage, carbon capture, biofuels and delivery into the electrical network.

Overview

In the Energy Systems programme offered by The University of Edinburgh we have established a low carbon vehicle group developing more efficient internal combustion engines. IES is also involved in two doctoral training centres: the Industrial Centre for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE) as a lead partner and the Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine, led by Strathclyde University.

Facilities

IES has excellent experimental facilities for both marine and electrical power. The Institute hosts the unique FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility, which is the world’s most sophisticated large marine energy test laboratory.

Programme Structure

  • The development of transferable skills is a vital part of postgraduate training and a vibrant, interdisciplinary training programme is offered to all research students by the University’s Institute for Academic Development (IAD). The programme concentrates on the professional development of postgraduates, providing courses directly linked to postgraduate study.
  • Courses run by the IAD are free and have been designed to be as flexible as possible so that you can tailor the content and timing to your own requirements.
  • Our researchers are strongly encouraged to present their research at conferences and in journal during the course of their programme.
  • Every year, the Graduate School organises a Postgraduate Research Conference to showcase the research carried out by students across the Research Institutes.
