As everyone knows sustainability is a field of high importance nowadays and raw materials are essential for the future of Europe. The Resources Engineering (EMerald) degree from EIT RawMaterials Academy offers you the opportunity you draw your own future within a circular economy driven by regenerable resources!
Towards a more Circular Economy
It is the unique signature of EMerald to bridge the gap between geological exploration and mineral processing by offering innovative education in geo-metallurgy. However, when considering the circular economy paradigm, it is also obvious that the rapidly developing urban mining sector in Europe needs a similar curriculum in eco-metallurgy.
The ambition here is to help close the loop in a resource-efficient way by forming professionals who know the processing challenges and the need to meet targets in terms of recyclability. Therefore, based on these needs-analysis in the raw material sector, the new EMerald program has been implemented in order to offer a specialization during the second year in primary resources (LTU) or in secondary resources (TUBAF).
EMerald Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD)
An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) is a prestigious, integrated, international study programme, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions (HEIs) and, where relevant, other partners with specific expertise and interest in the study programme.
