Marine Technology Educational Consortium

Awarding body: Heriot-Watt University, UK

Description: Life Sciences at Heriot-Watt University includes the International Centre for Brewing and Distilling (ICBD) and the Centre for Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology (CMBB). Around 50 academic staff work within the School of Life Sciences. Key topics include environmental biology, a largely marine-based discipline developed from the involvement of the University in North Sea oil exploration, and biotechnology, centred on micro-organisms and cereal plants, notably barley, wheat, maize and sugar beet. Again this arises from our long association with the brewing and distilling industries.
We have expanded our research portfolio into food science, human and exercise physiology, and psychology. Our environmental and food-beverage related research both rated a Grade 4 in the Research Assessment Exercise (2001).
