This two year master programme in Georesources Engineering from Luleå University of Technology is unique in Europe and provides the students with cutting edge knowledge in georesources engineering, geometallurgy and processing of primary mineral ore resources and secondary resources from metal recycling.


The future and sustainability of our societies is critically linked to the availability of raw materials, and to the efficiency of all processes involved throughout their life-cycle. There is a critical need, particularly in Europe, to educate engineers bridging the gap between georesources, secondary resources and advanced processing technologies.
