This is the only programme of its kind in the UK, giving you high-level skills and training across the rapidly developing area of carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Global energy demands are still rising, and fossil fuels remain central to meeting those demands in the medium term. CCS is a recognised solution to reducing CO2 emissions until fossil fuels are entirely replaced by renewable energy technologies.
With commercial trials under way, countries and industries are investing in this new technology. In the UK, all existing power stations must have a full-scale retrofit of CCS within five years of the technology being independently judged as technically and commercially proven.
This MSc draws on our world-class interdisciplinary academic research and the insights we have gained from projects involving our industrial stakeholders.
This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Environment & Society Academy.
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.
