MSc Track: Geo-Energy Engineering

With a rise in the worldwide standard of living and a growing world population, the use of the deep subsurface is becoming more intense. At the same time, society requires an accurate estimate of the risks and environmental impacts involved with subsurface engineering. Geo-Energy engineers are fully equipped to address these challenges. They have a thorough understanding of the rocks and structures and rock-fluid interactions in the subsurface which enables them to simulate, predict and monitor processes of deep-subsurface use and to design interventions minimizing the economic and environmental risks in a responsible manner. Geo-Energy Engineering combines multiple disciplines in a single coherent program, which makes it unique in The Netherlands.
