International Centre for Island Technology

ICIT is recognised as a world leader in research, teaching & consultancy with particular expertise in managing the resources of the marine environment. We are ideally based in Orkney, a renewable energy-rich area with 550 miles of diverse coastal habitats.

Our three established MSc programmes attract students from around the world. We design the renewable energy courses to produce highly qualified graduates who can fill the skills gap in the emerging renewable energy sector while the marine resource management programme provides graduates with a broad expertise in the management of marine and coastal resources.

We continue to develop a strong research and consultancy portfolio, enjoying mutually productive links with industry, Government and other academic bodies at local, national and international levels.
