Course content

Renewables are seen as the future source of energy to meet the world's growing demand, with geothermal resources offering a constant and independent supply. Almost 90 countries have geothermal energy yet only 24 of them produce electricity from geothermal sources. There is a growing demand for specialists that will be capable of ensuring successful implementation of more geothermal energy projects to help lower the dependency on energy imports and to develop a broader base in the future energy mix.

Geothermal resources will play a significant role in ensuring access to sustainable and reliable energy for all. Interdisciplinary competence is needed to untap the vast geothermal potential worldwide, through implementation of more and larger projects.

This is the only course to encompass all aspects of geothermal exploitation, from exploration to project delivery. You will develop the professional profile required by a growing energy sector, with a high level of skills' transferability across other geo-resource sectors, including oil and gas.
