Energy Engineering and Geoscience is a subfield within the doctoral programme in Science and Technology at UiS.
About the subfield
The subfield has specialications in reservoir engineering, drilling and well engineering, natural gas technology, petroleum geology, and computational engineering. The doctoral programme is linked to the research within each of these specialisations.
The PhD in Energy Engineering and Geosciences is targeted at individuals who wish to pursue a research-based career and education. Interested candidates should enjoy the main activities of research, writing, and communication as these are key to a successful PhD. The PhD in Energy Engineering and Geosciences covers a wide range of themes and welcomes people from various educational backgrounds. Available PhD positions should be evaluated by the interested applicant for hiring prerequisites, research goals, and particular themes. The Department of Energy and Petroleum Engineering and the Department of Energy Resources boast a large number of PhDs with an active community.
