Overview

The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource-efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage. The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the Master course will focus on two aspects:

– Bridging the gap between geological exploration and mineral processing by offering innovative education in geometallurgy

– Helping to 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

All courses offer a blend of theoretical lectures and practical work in the labs. Students often work in groups on a real case study, finding out for themselves possible processing routes for complex ores and waste materials. The third semester offers students the option to specialise more upstream at LTU (primary resources) or downstream at TU Freiberg (secondary resources). The final semester can be spent in any of the aforementioned institutions depending on the thesis specialisation. Regardless of the location, the Master thesis will be completed in close collaboration with an industrial partner or a research centre that will also host the students for an internship.
