The call for the Academic year 2022-2023 of the International Master on CO2 Geological Storage is now open!
The master is a one-year course dedicated to geoscientists and engineers. It provides a comprehensive preparation for young professionals interested to work in the field of CCS. The course is composed of a period of lessons (February to July), fieldwork and a period of traineeship at one of CO2GeoNet research institutes.
The Master will present an overview of state-of-the-art CCS operations and research; it will focus on the technical and scientific considerations for CO2 injection and safety monitoring, the exploration of critical processes in laboratory studies, numerical modelling, and conclusively on sound and reliable storage capacity estimates, including the project economics and planning of mitigation measures in case regulatory requirements are not fully met.
The programme will cover all aspects of the geological storage of CO2
so that the students will be able to understand the work of the different specialists involved in CCS projects, such as reservoir engineers, geologists, geophysicists, geochemical modelers, economists, regulators, etc.
This Postgraduate specialist university course (60 ECTS) is offered jointly by Sapienza University of Rome and University of Zagreb and includes the participation of professors from the TalTech – Tallinn University of Technology, Heriot-Watt University (HWU), Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) in cooperation with CO2Geonet, The European Network of Excellence on the Geological Storage of CO2.
Candidates are required to have a MSc degree in Earth Sciences or Petroleum Engineering according to the European Qualification Framework.
