Overview

The aim of the MSc programme is to prepare participants for managerial, advisory and academic positions in the energy sector. The programme aims to provide an intellectually challenging academic programme of study, which will demand of the student the ability to analyse, synthesise and evaluate key theoretical concepts and practical applications in energy with an emphasis on the economic dimensions of the subject.

The world's long-term economic development depends on the existence of efficient, innovative and creative energy and resources industries. These in turn rely on individuals who possess a sound grasp of their legal, economic, technical and policy backgrounds.

The CEPMLP is at the heart of these issues and provides the best in advanced education in its field, preparing its graduates to meet the challenges posed by the evolving global economy.

Throughout its history, the CEPMLP has achieved continuous growth and has established international pre-eminence in its core activities: scholarly performance, high level academic research, strategic consultancy and top-quality executive education. Currently, we have over 500 registered postgraduate students from more than 50 countries world-wide.

All modules are heavily contextualised and draw on the wide global network of expert staff in delivering a cutting edge programme of the highest quality and relevance to students.

This programme is designed for graduates with a good first degree, who aspire to work in the Energy sector and who have a particular interest in Oil & Gas or related sectors. To gain admission to the MSc Energy Studies programme, students are expected to hold a good honours degree or equivalent.

All modules will be delivered on the campus of the University of Dundee in face-to-face mode. Self-study makes up a considerable proportion of the student's learning experience. Formal and informal group work occurs in some modules.
