Welcome to the website of E-Futures, the University of Sheffield's Doctoral Training Centre for Interdisciplinary Energy Research
E-Futures is a Doctoral Training Centre that will train a new generation of scientists and engineers to address the challenges inherent in making the transition to a sustainable energy future. Students will receive an overview of energy issues in the first year of their training before developing individual specialisations through research projects.
E-Futures draws together world-class research within the University of Sheffield to train engineers and scientists with the skills, knowledge and confidence to tackle today's evolving issues regarding energy generation, management and supply.
E-Futures also represents a new working culture, fostering relationships between teams in universities and forging lasting links with industry and other external organisations.
Students will receive a formal programme of taught material to develop and enhance their technical interdisciplinary knowledge, and broaden their set of skills. Alongside this they will undertake a challenging and original research project at PhD level.
