London South Bank University

Course Introduction

This course takes a forward-thinking approach to the traditional energy ~ oil and gas ~ supplies and delivers concepts that fit with the future of decreased reliance on fossil fuels. We use the subsurface and energy expertise developed at LSBU to produce a new type of energy undergraduate programme. We acknowledge that at the heart of future energy is a core understanding of fundamental engineering and that Chemical engineering is the traditional path to a career in oil and gas, renewables or future technologies. In this programme we have brought together the essentials of Chemical Engineering and added a flavour of geoscience, exploration and processing to highlight and develop a deep understanding of the energy mix. The course will show how oil and gas techniques can be used to harness geothermal energy, develop concepts of carbon dioxide storage in sub surface environments and inform about the myriad of renewable energy technologies that are available.

This course will prepare you for a career in which you'll design, be creative, research and test new products - new fuels, imaginary processes or complete systems - and make them commercially viable.

We offer the opportunity for all undergraduate Home/EU students to undertake a work placement, internship or work experience while studying a full-time course starting in September 2020.
