About the program

The MSc in Energy Geosciences (formerly Petroleum Geoscience) at Chulalongkorn University is a postgraduate program that focuses on the study of the geological aspects of energy resources in the energy transition.

The program aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand the geology of energy resources for a low-carbon future, as well as the environmental and economic implications of their extraction and use.

Our program provides students with a broader understanding of energy resources, including not only fossil fuels but also renewable energy sources such as geothermal, wind, and solar energy.

Our teaching also provides students with the latest knowledge and tools necessary to keep up with these advancements and work with cutting-edge technologies. This allows graduates to pursue careers in a wider range of industries, including not only oil and gas but also renewable energy, environmental consulting, and mining.
