The Aberdeen Institute of Energy is a distinctive solution that will help address current and future energy challenges.
Built on the foundations of research driven education for over 500 years, Aberdeen Institute of Energy will signify a major step-change in the way energy related solutions can be delivered between industry and academia. Situated in the heart of Europe’s Energy Capital; a city renowned throughout the world for technological development and inspiring solutions, we are best placed and best connected to understand the needs of the industry and make a real difference.
We have world renowned academic experts working together, across boundaries and disciplines to maintain the highest quality of research, innovation and exchange of new ideas, whilst being responsive to demands for teaching and solutions seeking research from industry and policy makers.
To reach the solutions required by the industry an approach to working across natural, environmental and technical sciences, economics, law and social sciences is essential. Our approach to working consciously mirrors the way the energy industry operates, in bringing together experts from different disciplines to solve problems and deliver projects. While we already work together with some of the supermajors in addressing the “big picture” issues facing the industry, we are set up in a way that allows us to also work alongside the more specialised technology driven firms which are every bit as essential to the sector. Our approach is flexible and our experience is vast.
The Aberdeen Institute of Energy is the central point of contact at the University for accessing all energy related teaching, research and training.
The Institute is connected internally across all energy related disciplines but equally externally with a number of key partner organisations, including:
- World Energy Cities Partnership (Academic Network)
- Centres of Excellence
- Offshore Renewables Institute (ORI)
- NERC Oil and GAS CDT
- Scottish Research Partnership in Engineering and the Northern Research Partnership (SRPe and NRP)
