Sustainable management and use of minerals, energy and natural resources is crucial for global development.
UCL’s first international campus aims to be the leading global centre for systems modelling, at both micro and macroscale, of natural resource extraction, processing and logistics.
Within the field of natural resources, we focus on the management of petroleum, water, renewable energy, nuclear and uranium, marine environments, minerals, and the issue of climate change.
Australia is a world-leading source of natural resources and UCL staff and students enjoy a state-of-the-art postgraduate campus in Adelaide, featuring regular classroom interaction with business and political leaders. There is also an interdisciplinary curriculum encompassing engineering, economics, policy, laws and political science, plus major field trips to places such as Olympic Dam – the world’s largest uranium mine, owned by BHP Billiton – Arrium’s steel rolling mills at Whyalla and Santos’ giant oil and gas assets in remote areas of Australia.
The UCL School of Energy and Resources, Australia offers a niche MSc in Energy and Resource Management, including the option of a major year 2 research project hosted by industry, and an interdisciplinary PhD programme in either the School, the UCL International Energy Policy Institute or the Mullard Space Science Laboratory (Australia).
