Course summary

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 low carbon future.

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 a variety of ways to reduce CO2 emissions from the energy sector to help in meeting net-zero targets to tackle climate change, such as carbon capture and storage, along with energy storage technologies that complement renewable energy provision.

The MSc has been explicitly designed to explore a wide range of energy topics, giving you opportunities for a varied career path.

What is Geoenergy?

Geoenergy encompasses the entire range of energy technologies and sources that interact with the geological subsurface.

This includes both established energy technologies such as hydrocarbons, through to developing areas such as the production of geothermal energy and the storage of radioactive waste.

These technologies require either injection, extraction or interaction with fluids from the subsurface which are subject to fundamental geological controls.

Understanding these controls is essential for responsible and safe utilisation of these energy-related technologies for a low carbon future.
