Что я буду изучать?

EIT RawMaterials Academy is part of a unique European initiative: EIT, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology. EIT’s educational mission is to raise a new generation of innovators in Europe with an entrepreneurial mindset. The EIT label is a certificate of quality that is awarded only to excellent educational programmes at the Master and Doctoral level. EIT-Labelled master programmes are delivered and awarded by EIT RawMaterials’ university partners, with strong input from industry partners and a focus on entrepreneurship and innovation.

Programme Structure

The first year of the programme aims to harmonise students’ knowledge and help them to find the right balance between resources characterisation and modelling, and processing and management techniques (multidisciplinarity). The thematic courses offered by the two universities (ULiège and UL) are complemented by a strong programme to develop transversal skills. Industry experts and invited scholars bring in key contributions on corporate social responsibility, economics, lifecycle analysis and other essential aspects of modern sustainable engineering operations.

All courses offer a blend of theoretical lectures and practical work in the labs. Students often work in groups on a real case study, finding out for themselves possible processing routes for complex ores and waste materials.

The third semester offers students the option to specialise more upstream at LTU (primary resources) or downstream at TUBAF (secondary resources). The final semester can be spent in any of the aforementioned institutions depending on the thesis specialisation. Regardless of the location, the Master thesis will be completed in close collaboration with an industrial partner or a research centre that will also host the students for an internship.

Professional Profiles after Graduation

The knowledge and skills EMerald graduates gain are highly valued in industry and beyond. Not only are EMerald graduates qualified to work in the fields of mining, building materials (cement, aggregates), non-ferrous metals production, circular economy of metals and mineral chemistry, possible career paths also include working for:

  • Geological surveys
  • Junior exploration companies
  • Investment banks (resources sector)
  • Venture capital (resources sector)
  • EU Commission (raw materials and industry)
  • National/regional governments (mining laws, implementing circular economy, mineral industry)
  • EMerald also prepares you for further study (PhD) in mineral processing, geometallurgy, resources/reserves estimation, process development, mineral industry, etc.
