Students studying the Integrated Petroleum Geosciences MSc put their knowledge to the test in a recent event held at the School of Geosciences.
The presentation day gave 17 students the opportunity to showcase research they each undertook as part of their summer projects, many of which were completed at major energy companies.
The prize-giving event covered a range of topics from exploration and production geoscience through to decommissioning and carbon capture and storage. All prizes were donated by Shell and presented by David Jones, Geology Discipline Lead for Shell U.K.
Rachel Brackenridge, Programme Leader, commented: “The event was really well attended by alumni and energy industry representatives who have supported the programme through student scholarships, summer projects, teaching and mentoring.
“This support allows the programme to remain relevant to the needs of industry as we move through the energy transition, and as a result a large number of our Masters students have already secured graduate positions.
“I’d like to thank all those who contributed towards a successful event, not least the students themselves whose presentation were of an exceptionally high standard.”
