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.
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.
Additional Programme Costs: £400
This MSc programme is made up of lectures and practical classes, followed by a research dissertation of up to 15,000 words. The programme includes industry guest lectures as well as opportunities for fieldwork and industry site visits to a range of locations.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
The minimum entry requirement is a UK 2:1 degree, or its international equivalent: http://www.ed.ac.uk/studying/international/country/introduction
