MSC SUBSURFACE CHARACTERISATION AND GEOMODELLING
for a geoscience career in a changing world
Now accepting applicants for a September 2022 start
This one-year taught MSc course is tailored to provide geoscientists with a range of sought-after skills needed for the transition to a low carbon, sustainable society.
Upon completion, you will be employable in a wide range of industry and applied research areas, including: mineral resources, energy, geothermal, groundwater, carbon sequestration, geotechnical services, national geological surveys, waste management, and research careers.
You will receive training in the principles and methods of the acquisition, analysis and digital modelling of data from the shallow and deep subsurface. Modules will cover: Aspects of 3D mapping; Stratigraphic prediction; 'Hard rock’ characterization; Quaternary geology; Applied structural geology; Data Processing; Geophysical methods; Remote sensing; Geostatistics; Fractured rock characterisation; Geofluids; Geomechanics and geomodelling.
As part of the course, you will also receive training in state of the art industry software (e.g., Petrel and Leapfrog, GIS) and develop a range of soft skills (e.g. presenting, reporting and programming) required by industry.
