EPSRC EngD Centre in Efficient Fossil Energy Technologies

Organisation Address details


The distinguishing features of an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) are its 4 year duration, higher stipend than normal PhDs, and the requirement that most of time (about 3 years) is spent conducting research in industry. The EngD Centre will produce research leaders to tackle the major national and international challenges over the next 15 years in implementing new power plant to generate electricity more efficiently using fossil energy with near zero emissions, involving the successful demonstration of CO2 capture, and reducing CO2 emissions generally from coal utilisation, including iron making. These leaders will be part of the new breed of engineers who will be thoroughly versed in cutting edge energy research and capable of operating in multi-disciplinary teams, covering a range of knowledge transfer, deployment and policy roles and with the skills to analyse the overall economic context of their projects and to be aware of the social and ethical implications. In total, training will be provided for 50 PhDs with 10 being recruited each year between 2009 and 2013.
