European Mining Course
The European Mining Course (EMC) is an triple-degree master program by Aalto University (Finland), RWTH Aachen University (Germany) and Montanuniversität Leoben (Austria). Students spent one semester at each university and prepare their master thesis in close cooperation with industry partners. Graduates of the EMC have meaningful job opportunities in all parts of the world and at home to help providing the world with responsible mineral resources.
Entry requirements: Profound English skills , BSc in the engineering or geoscience disciplines, such as Mining Engineering, Resource Engineering, Geology, Earth Sciences, Environmental Engineering
fees vary by nationality/
More are coming soon! We are collecting study programs from all over Europe!
A summer school will be established to function as a joint module of the three partner universities and will be open to external participants. The content will focus on the sustainable and responsible sourcing of mineral raw materials. The first module of the summer school will start in August 2023 at Aalto University.
So far, a total of four modules is planned:
- Sustainable rock drilling and blasting technique
- Remote rock mass characterization
- Mining and energy
- Occupational and process safety in mining
