  • Geoenergy MSc

    The University of Edinburgh

    This MSc is aimed at students who wish to pursue a geoscience-related career in the future energy sector as it transitions from fossil fuels to a low carbon economy.

  • Physical sciences and Engineering: MSc by Research

    The University of Aberdeen

    Students undertake a research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor and, unlike a postgraduate taught degree, there are no formal lectures or seminars and work is not formally examined until after the final thesis is submitted.

  • Research degrees in Carbon Capture and Storage

    Heriot-Watt University

    This can include topics under Carbon Storage and Carbon Utilisation and includes MSc (one-year study), MPhil (two-year study) and PhD (three-year study).

  • Petroleum Geoscience (PetGeo) MSc

    Heriot-Watt University

    The programme focuses on exploration petroleum geoscience but is closely linked with other MSc programmes and is applicable to non-petroleum subsurface geoscience subjects, such as CO2 storage and groundwater flow.

  • Subsurface Energy Systems MSc

    Heriot-Watt University

    This programme delivers the key concepts of subsurface energy and CO2 storage, geothermal energy or transitional gas and integrates geoscience, engineering, political and societal aspects important for large scale implementation of these technologies. The programme is recommended for Geoscientists, Petroleum Engineers, and Governmental Stakeholders and beyond such that they can participate in the management of subsurface reservoirs used to switch from a fossil fuel driven to a decarbonised economy.
