|REMS is an EPSRC funded centre aiming to train fifty Engineering Doctorate (EngD) and PhD students over an eight-year period, admitting ten new students each year for five years started in October 2014. This is a collaborative partnership between Cranfield University and the University of Oxford.
A student registering for an EngD spends four years attending a structured programme of taught modules and will complete a PhD-level thesis or portfolio of work. The industry-based students could be existing staff or the EngD could form part of a graduate training programme for new recruits with a view to them becoming leading specialists in the area of Renewable Energy Marine Structures by the time they graduate. Industry-based students will spend 75% of their time working in their companies but will attend intensive training periods at the universities for taught modules, group project working and other activities. The PhD students will pursue research primarily in a university but with a strong industrial focus. Research Projects will usually be supervised by at least one academic based at one of the two universities and an industry mentor/supervisor.
The REMS Centre will have significant and long lasting impact in four core areas (Society, Economy, Knowledge and People) through various innovative and novel activities, maximising the benefit offered from the research, training and outreach activities. The REMS Centre will build on existing best practice and impact activities undertaken at the partner institutes.
If you are interested in sponsoring a research project, for an EngD or PhD, please contact either Professor Feargal Brennan at Cranfield University or Professor Byron Byrne at Oxford University.
