To mitigate climate change while meeting energy demand, ambitious targets have been set to reduce carbon emissions through carbon capture and storage (CCS).This MSc has been developed to meet the demand for well-qualified engineers and researchers needed to design, construct and operate carbon capture facilities for fossil fuel-fired power plants and transport networks in the future.

This MSc course offers the academic and technical depth required for engineers who will be needed to design, build and operate carbon capture and transport facilities; and researchers for the continual development of the technology.

In addition to management, communication, team work and research skills, you will attain the following outcomes from this degree course: – An in-depth understanding of the technical, economic and environmental issues involved in the design and operation of CO2 capture plants and CO2 transport systems – Understand systematically the current theory and practice of the carbon capture process and the carbon transport system – Apply effectively the knowledge gained to the design and control of carbon capture plants and the carbon transport system – Make effective use of a range of software employed for modelling, optimisation and control of carbon capture and transport systems.

Programme structure

The taught programme for the Carbon Capture and Storage masters is generally delivered from October to March and is comprised of seven compulsory modules and one optional module. The modules are delivered over one to two weeks of intensive delivery with the later part of the module being free from structured teaching to allow time for more independent learning and reflection.

Career opportunities

Industry-led education makes Cranfield graduates some of the most desirable in the world for recruitment by companies competing in the energy sector. Graduates from this course will be equipped with the academic skills and requirements to successfully pursue a range of careers within this industry; including positions within power generation companies, CO2 capture and transport industries, research organisations or academic institutions.

This qualification could take you onto become a qualified engineer or academic researcher able to meet the demands of a new industry to design, construct and operate carbon capture facilities for new and existing fossil fuel-fired power plants and transport networks.
