Energy Resources Engineering studies new ways of prospecting, exploring and valuing energy mineral resources from a sustainable perspective. This Master provides knowledge, methods and tools to characterize and model the properties and processes that occur in the Earth’s subsurface, especially those related to geoenergy (geothermal, gas and oil) and geological carbon sequestration.
The Master in Mining and Geological Engineering has partnerships with several international universities such as: Montanuniversitat Leoben (Austria), University of Mining and Geology ´St Ivan Rilsky (Bulgaria), University of Zagreb (Croacia), Universidad de Oviedo (Spain), Universidad de Vigo (Spain), Universidad Politecnica de Madrid - Etsi Minas (Spain), U. Politecnica de Cartagena (Spain), Politecnico di Torino (Italy), Universita degli Studi di Cagliari (Italy), Universitá degli Studi di Catania (Italy), Universitá degli Studi di Roma "La Sapienza" (Italy), Politechnika Slaska (Poland), Technická Univerzita Ostrava (Czech Republic).
All students can complete the first semester of the master program at University of Leoben, the second semester at Freiberg University, and the third semester at Técnico. The master’s thesis, in the fourth semester, can be completed at any of the three partner universities.
Petroleum Engineering (Técnico/ULisboa) -> Perspectives of dual degree with China University of Petroleum, East-China.
The Master in Petroleum Engineering established partnerships with foreign universities for student mobility, namely University of S. Paulo (Brazil), S. Paulo State University (Brazil), State University of Campinas (Brazil), Petroleum Institute (Abu-Dhabi),Heriot-Watt University (UK), University of Wyoming (USA), Clausthal University of Technology (Germany), Freiberg University of Mining and Technology (Germany).
