Certificate on Advance Studies DEEGEOSYS - Exploration & Development of Deep Geothermal Systems - 3rd Edition 2015-2016 is being offered by the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland

Since 2009, a new Master’s degree of Science in Hydrogeology and Geothermics is available at the University of Neuchâtel, organized by the Centre for Hydrogeology and Geothermics. A common-core syllabus covers basic domains in hydrogeology and in geothermics, then the specialization intervenes for the last part.

As specialists are missing for exploration and exploitation of the geothermal reservoirs in Switzerland and Europe, a continuing education programme in deep geothermal systems still corresponds to a real need.

Today, a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS DEEGEOSYS) is available at the University of Neuchâtel and presented here. The 1st and 2nd editions took place successfully in 2011-2012 and in 2013-214 with more than 20 participants for each session.

The CAS DEEGEOSYS includes four one-week long modules separated by a two-month break. Each module covers a specific topic : 1. Geothermics and Geophysics / 2. Geochemistry and Hydrochemistry / 3. Drilling and Logging / 4. Reservoir evaluation and Production.
