The MSc in Subsurface Energy Systems contains lectures and project work, encompassing a wide range of subsurface geoscience and engineering fundamentals, relevant to the current petroleum, subsurface storage or geothermal industry.
Project work provides an opportunity for ideas and methods, assimilated through lectures and tutorials, to be applied to real field evaluation and development design problems. The courses on this MSc are applied in nature and have been specifically designed so that our students are technically well prepared for, and have a sound knowledge of, the industry.
This degree is delivered by The Lyell Centre and the Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering committed to delivering research and training courses that meet the needs of the international subsurface energy industry.
Masters (MSc) level entry applicants must have one of the following:
Minimum of 2:2 honours degree or equivalent academic qualification in a related subject area; For postgraduate conversion courses, non-related degrees will be considered; Corporate (or chartered) membership of relevant professional institutions will also be considered.
Candidates who do not meet the above entry requirements or have no formal academic qualifications will be considered individually based on their CV and possibly interview. Admission via this route will be at the discretion of the Director of Recruitment.
Applicants will need good mathematical ability to succeed on their programmes. Students should have experience in university level mathematics of the sort commonly encountered on engineering degrees (e.g. a pass, or passes, in previous university level maths-based courses/modules) and be confident in further development of these skills.
