Future sources of energy are studied under the Renewable Energy department, at the University of Dundee. Students, who want to contribute their bit in the fight against global environmental damage, will find a career in renewable energy very satisfying and worth the hard work.

The new Marine Renewable Test Centre, was created with the sole purpose of contributing to Scotland’s dream of superior control of offshore wind and marine renewable energy by 2020.

The new test center is at par with

  • Flowave TT located at the University of Edinburgh 
  • EMEC

The benefits which the students and the renewable energy sector stand to gain from this center are:

#1. R&D

The new Marine Renewable Test Center, at the University of Dundee is being supported by ERDF, to provide the basis of a successful partnership between Dundee, Aberdeen and Robert Gordon Universities.  833000 pounds have been funded from this fund to provide all resources for marine policy and planning. The center will further aid research in building of turbines and low carbon research.

#2. Renewable Energy

Students that have a driving passion to solve the global problems of the plant, should opt for a degree in Renewable energy. University Of Dundee has been making meaningful progress to reduce carbon foot prints, and a team of active members has been established to encourage green initiatives on the campus.

#3. Mission

The purpose of the new 2 million test center is to become a leading center in the development, design and testing of marine renewable construction materials. It will also encourage prototype foundations and help in finding solutions by developing innovative designs. More research and development will be undertaken in areas of deployment of offshore wind farms, with concrete foundations. Scotland has now got lead in the area of energy development by low carbon. The close co ordination of the three universities will raise the level of policy, research and specialization to a higher global level.

#4. Vision

University of Dundee is already has a well experienced team of engineers and scientists who have been doing pioneer work in the field of Renewable energy, along with sharing their knowledge with students. Research on key issues like renewable energy, nano technology and material study , has been going on for many years, with contributions that have changed international opinion on the topic. Students have the versatile option of combining their Beng Mechanical Engineering degree with renewable or BSC Physics with Renewable energy science.

#5. Creating jobs

This is a new sector and has the potential of creating up to forty thousand jobs or more and will boost the Scottish economy by thirty billions. It will solve the nation’s energy problems and meet all innovative and high aspiring goals.  Students who pass out with a degree in renewable energy have the opportunity to work anywhere in the world. UK has a major demand for such graduates with specialization in this field. Other MSCi students can continue to work on research and development in the field.
