King's Buildings Campus
The MSc GeoEnergy enables you to pursue a geosciences-related career in the rapidly evolving energy sector, as it transitions from fossil fuels to a net-zero future.
You can contribute to achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, including:
Goal 7: "Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy".
Goal 13: "Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts".
The programme uses subsurface geological knowledge to open a diverse range of career paths in lower-carbon energy technologies, the disposal of energy-related wastes and the evolving hydrocarbon industry.
You will learn about various ways to reduce CO2 emissions from the energy sector to help meet net-zero targets to tackle climate change. For example, you will learn about methods such as carbon capture and storage along with energy storage technologies that complement renewable energy provision.
A UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in a science or engineering subject. Relevant professional experience is taken into account.
You application may also be considered if your background is not specifically related to these disciplines provided you have relevant work experience in a related area.
