The Scottish Funding Council (SFC) is providing 12 full-fee scholarships for the University of Edinburgh’s Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Masters programme, which offers two streams of study that allow students to focus on their key area of interest.
The MSc programme also offers the chance to study part-time over two to three years, and that could be of interest to industry employers who are keen to allow their staff to retrain while remaining in post.
The CCS Masters is run by the university’s School of GeoSciences. It provides interdisciplinary skills and training across the full CCS chain, including power production, CO2 capture, transportation and storage, as well as legal and regulatory aspects. Graduates will leave with the skills needed for a career in low-carbon energy production from fossil fuel with CCS, and with job opportunities in the conventional power generation sector.
If you’re interested in applying for one of the 12 funded places, or simply want to find out more, contact the School of GeoSciences by emailing email@example.com. The deadline for applications is 1 May 2013, and the scholarships are available to Scottish and European Union students.
