Geoscience for Energy – Eni Master School (GEMS)

The difference between reading about a discovery and making one

We are looking for the explorers of tomorrow, with multidisciplinary backgrounds, ready for a journey to discover the world of energy.

Our aim is to specialise young people with an in-depth knowledge of the world of Exploration and an eye on the future, to accompany it in its transformation.

The energy sector is undergoing a major transition that will lead to openness towards alternative forms of energy and new business models. In this context, we have become a leader in the Exploration sector, where the sustainability of operations and the use of natural gas are increasingly strategic factors.

Who it is aimed at

The Master's class will consist of 20 young graduates who will be selected by Eni. 
Candidates will be invited to take part in the selection if they meet the following requirements on the closing date of the competition notice: 

 

  • Have obtained or plan to obtain a Master's Degree with a grade of 100/110 or higher (or equivalent foreign degree) by 31 July 2022 at the latest in:
    • Physics (LM-17)  
    • Electrical Engineering (LM-29)  
    • Mathematics (LM-40)  
    • Mathematical-Physical Modelling for Engineering (LM-44)  
    • Geological Sciences and Technologies (LM-74)  
    • Geological Sciences and Technologies for the Environment and Territory (LM-75)  
    • Geophysical Sciences and Technologies (LM-79)
  • Have not reached the age of 28 by 31/12/2022. 

     

  • Have an excellent knowledge of English. For foreign candidates, a good knowledge of Italian will be considered preferential. 

     

  • Have Italian citizenship or citizenship for one of the countries in the European Union or a residence permit valid for the entire duration of the Master's course.

*The call for entries has expired, stay tuned to this page for the next edition.

Corporate Support

All students admitted to participate in the Master will receive a monthly scholarship for the entire duration of the course (11 months) of EUR 1,000 gross per month for participants of Italian nationality and EUR 1,300 gross per month for participants of non-Italian nationality. In the event of dual nationality, participants will be considered Italian or foreign on the basis of residence.

In addition, the cost of the Master's course will be borne directly by Eni and students will not have to pay any tuition fees.

The call for application has expired, stay tuned on this page for the next edition.

The Master's

We offer an 11-month training course, entirely in English, with lectures given by academic staff from national and international universities and by Eni experts: an interdisciplinary teaching body highly oriented towards the practical application of knowledge. 

 

The GEMS master’s will begin with an alignment period in order to establish a common foundation for participants with different backgrounds. The programme will include lectures, studies and experiences applied to real cases, geological field work and the preparation of a final exploration project.

 

The programme will consist of the following modules:

Basic principles of Geology and Geophysics applied to the search for energy sources

  • Current energy scenario
  • Eni's approach to energy transition and alternative energy solutions
  • Decarbonisation:
    • Economia circolare
    • CCUS
    • H2
  • Subsurface investigation  

  • Seismic signal modelling and analysis  

  • Technologies for monitoring storage sites

 

  • Subsurface data analysis
  • Rock characterisation
  • Geological models and their evolution
  • Descriptive and predictive modelling of geological sites
  • Identification of a CO2 mining or storage target

  • Technical and economic evaluation of the target

  • Risk analysis

  • Renewable energy development 

Technologies and approaches for analysing data collected underground
