Overview

The Master's Programme in Biorefineries from LUT University  is a practical solution to practical lifelong learning.

The sustainable production of energy, food, chemicals and materials is a major challenge today and for the future generations.

The production has until now been based on fossil raw materials but this has in turn caused very serious environmental challenges.

The use of renewable raw materials where it is technically possible and economically feasible is one of the corner technologies for mitigating climate change and saving scarce natural resources. 

Careers

You will acquire the knowledge and skills to work in different fields of the biorefining industry, most typically in research, development, or various operations of biorefining sites and related equipment manufacturers globally.

You will also be able to work in project management and consulting companies, education, or assessing related laws, regulations and actions taken by authorities. You will also gain knowledge on biorefining to be able to discuss future choices critically within the biorefining industry, to renew the strategy of your company, or to work as a decision-maker.

The circular economy is also a very closely related field: this Master's programme is not restricted only to the biorefining industry but applies more generally to industry related to the use of renewable resources.

In addition, you will obtain a firm basis for continuing your studies in doctoral programmes.
