This outstanding MSc programme is the first of its kind in the UK, providing you with high-level skills and training across the entire breadth of the rapidly developing area of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).

As global energy demands are set to rise for the foreseeable future, fossil fuels will remain a central part of the way we generate energy. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been increasingly recognised as a technology that can help us meet our rising energy demands while minimising the amount of climate changing CO we release into the atmosphere.

This MSc draws on our world-class inter-disciplinary academic research and the insights we have gained from projects involving our industrial stakeholders.

Careers

Graduates can enter into all manner of jobs due to the transferable and highly desirable nature of the skills gained. However, typically our graduates pursue careers in business, industry, government and non-governmental organisations in the field of low-carbon energy production.
