The backbone of the master programs is a solid technical basis broadly covering aspects of materials and processing, sustainability and recycling, circular (eco)design and life cycle engineering, materials substitution and manufacturing (60 ECTS). This is completed with courses on entrepreneurship and innovation (30 ECTS), an internship (6 ECTS), and the master thesis (24 ECTS). The internship and thesis are positioned in companies strongly related to the field of sustainable and raw materials.
