Career opportunities

Jobs

  • Reservoir geoscientists: they interpret and integrate all available data to characterize the reservoir's architecture and properties. They equally evaluate its potential and contribute to future developments
  • Exploration geoscientists: they implement the techniques and tools needed to acquire and interpret data in order to evaluate basins and identify new resources. They can also be involved in the geological monitoring of drilling operations and geophysical aspects of data acquisition
  • Reservoir engineers: study the production potential of reservoirs and the technical means to be implemented to optimize recovery rates
  • Geodata scientists
Funding & sponsorships

Typical class profile

Students in this program are almost all sponsored by companies (through sponsorships or apprenticeships) that finance their living expenses during the academic period and contribute towards their tuition.

Main sponsors

Supporting companies include national and international energy companies, engineering and service companies of the energy sector, consulting companies, international institutions as well as geothermal and underground storage companies.
