About International Centre for Island Technology - The Orkney Campus at Heriot-Watt University

In 1989 the International Centre for Island Technology (ICIT) was established in the Old Academy in Stromness, the second largest town in the Orkney Islands. This location provides a unique teaching and research facility and has been pivotal in the development of the University's ongoing environmental research programme. Issues of sustainability and the use of technologies are critical to much of this research which has focused on areas such as:

  • Marine resource and coastal zone management
  • Renewable energy and energy planning
  • Waste minimisation and management
  • Fish stock and habitat enhancement technologies
  • Conflicts of use in marine and coastal estates
  • Biodiversity and marine conservation
  • Diving science
