Career in the Geothermal Industry
OVERVIEW OF STUDIES, APPRENTICESHIP AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Almost 25,000 people work in geothermal and the industry has been growing steadily for years. The need for interdisciplinary trained specialists is great, summed up the German Geothermal Association (BVG) in its press release on June 2nd. In its new information brochure “Studies, apprenticeship and professional development in geothermal energy”, the BVG therefore gives an overview of suitable training opportunities in geothermal energy. Of course, this also includes information on the joint joint-degree master’s course “GeoThermal/GeoEnergy”, which is part of the GAB-project at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) & TUM. The master’s program is unique in Germany and serves the following goals: I) teaching a holistic spectrum of content – from the exploration and development of geothermal resources using modern methods – to their use and storage, II) promoting innovative, interdisciplinary thinking and acting in the exploration and use of geoenergetic resources and III) bundling of teaching and research competence relevant to geoenergetic resources across disciplines and locations.
In the BVG brochure, all courses in Germany related to geothermal energy are compared. You can download the information brochure here on the website of the German Geothermal Association.
