Introduction

The University of Edinburgh is home to the very first Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Masters programme in the UK.

CCS has been increasingly recognised as a technology option that could be critical to avoiding dangerous climate change. Commercial-scale demonstration projects are being considered across the world and a number of companies in a broad range of industrial sectors are developing increasingly large teams of people to develop and deliver these projects.

On 30 October 2012 the UK Government short listed four bids for the next phase of the UK’s £1bn Carbon Capture and Storage competition and is committed to providing funding to support the development of CCS technology.

Carbon Capture and Storage

Geological reservoirs are vital for the hydrocarbon industry, drinking water supply and geological carbon storage. This programme provides training in reservoir geology and an overview of geological carbon storage including capture and economic aspects.

It is designed for science graduates in Engineering or Geoscience-related subjects, who are seeking an advanced academic qualification as a launch pad for careers in business, industry and government, in the field of low carbon energy production and hydrocarbon production.
