University of Manchester: Geoscience for Sustainable Energy

Institution University of Manchester
Department Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences
Study type Taught


The mission of this programme is to develop the technical knowledge and skills required for graduating students to work in interdisciplinary careers that ensure the sustainable supply of energy and technology deployed to reduce atmospheric carbon by:

  • supplying energy from the subsurface

  • storing energy in the subsurface

  • long-term atmospheric carbon storage

  • storing waste from energy streams

  • developing environmentally-sustainable solutions for sustainable future energy supply

  • This education and training will be facilitated by integration of fundamental theoretical knowledge, field-, laboratory and computational tools, through blended learning, tutorials, seminars, field trip and group work.

In this programme we train next-generation geoscientists in the skills needed to ensure the long-term, sustainable supply and storage of low-carbon energy. Graduates of this programme will be able to demonstrate a broad understanding of all subsurface geoscience applications, alongside an in-depth technical knowledge of sedimentary geoscience and geophysics, rock mechanics, fluid flow and pore evolution. This will equip students for employment within the energy sector, including in the fields of energy, heat and hydrogen storage, geothermal energy, geological carbon sequestration, gas/compressed air storage, environmental governance of hydrocarbon extraction, and nuclear waste disposal. The programme content has been designed following consultation with key players in the energy industry and the programme will be supported by an industrial advisory board from a diverse range of sub-surface disciplines/energy providers.
