Overview

In this Master's programme, you will specialise in biorefining and related industries in the circular economy.

The Master's Programme in Biorefineries is delivered in blended mode, which means that the programme combines on-campus and independent online studies. Most of the obligatory specialisation studies require participation in contact teaching in Lahti in the form of lectures, exercises, or laboratory assignments. The programme is well suited for people already in the working world in Finland or abroad, aiming for professional development and the upgrading of qualifications. Some of the courses can be completed as distance learning. Students admitted to the programme should prepare to attend classes on campus when needed.

Career prospects 

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 public organisations such as municipal authorities or state agencies. You will 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 Biorefineries programme from LUT University is not restricted to the biorefining industry but applies more generally to industry related to the use of biobased renewable resources.

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

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Core studies, 19 ECTS credits, include introduction courses to M.Sc. studies and research in the field of biorefineries and chemical engineering in general. They also include studies on sustainability and the connection between technology and society. 
  • Advanced specialisation studies, 58 ECTS credits, in biobased process engineering deal with, for example, alternative biorefineries and enabling technologies, e.g. separation technologies, biological wastewater treatment and bioeconomy.
  • In elective studies, you can choose any discipline at LUT or other universities to complete 120 ECTS credits.
