Sustainability for Engineering & Energy Systems
The Sustainability for Engineering & Energy Systems (SEES) IDC develops the next generation of professionals, enabling them to become effective agents of change in the transition to a more sustainable, lower carbon economy. It provides a stimulating environment for research and high-quality professional development, enabling talented researchers to drive progress towards the sustainable delivery of products and services. The programme is academically equivalent to a PhD, but has one major difference – the student (or ‘Research Engineer’) spends the majority of their time at a sponsor organisation’s premises working on their commercial research priorities. They return to the IDC for short courses, conferences and seminars designed to develop specialist technical knowledge and exceptional business skills.
The SEES programme has now taken on its last cohort of Research Engineers. We are happy to introduce our new programme: the Practitioner Doctorate in Sustainability. All projects for the 2015 intake have now been recruited however the Programme Team is currently working with sponsor companies to define the next intake of projects. Potential sponsors wanting to get involved with the Practitioner Doctorate in Sustainability programme should contact the Team via the website as soon as possible. Student applications will be opened towards the of 2015 and further information about this will be available on the course page.
