Program description

Master of Science Minerals and Environmental Programme- Erasmus Mundus master

The EMMEP (Erasmus Mundus Minerals and Environmental Programme) is a 2 year M.Sc. program for students in Mining / Geotechnical Engineering, Mineral Processing, Recycling and related academic studies. There are three different specialisations; accommodating groups with 15 to 20 students each.

The existing MSc programmes that are taught at the six universities form the basis of this two-year master course. The diversity, as well as the complimentary nature of these existing programmes will ensure that students can specialise themselves in different subjects related to the field of Resource Engineering. None of the individual universities alone can offer the subject paths this joint master offers, which is what makes the EMMEP Master a unique one.

Admission requirements

  • You must have a good Bachelor’s degree in mining, or minerals engineering, or an equivalent graduate degree in a subject relevant to the EMMEP Programme. You have a thorough general knowledge on the fundamentals in engineering or geo-sciences and your degree represents a minimum of 180 ECTS.
  • In case the Bachelor's degree has not been completed at the time of application, you should include a letter from your university stating that the degree will be completed before the 1 July.
  • You are required to have a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 75 % of the scale maximum. 
  • If you do not originate from the countries United Kingdom, United States, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland or the English speaking part of Canada , you are required to demonstrate your proficiency in English. This will be done by submitting the results of a recognized language proficiency test, such as the TOEFL, IELTS or an equivalent. The English requirements are IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL internet based 90. Please note that regarding the TOEFL test, we only accept the internet based tests.
