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.
The Georesources Engineering program from Luleå University of Technology is 2 years (120 ECTS) and consists of specially designed courses at the partner universities. Each student is traveling between the participating universities, studying with them, and finally choosing where he or she wants to write the master thesis. The master programme begins with the first term at the University of Liège, which is also responsible for the admission process. The University of Nancy (2nd term) is responsible for training in advanced knowledge of georesouces modelling. During the 3rd term the universities in Germany and Sweden are responsible for training in geology, mineral resources and mineral processing as well as metal recycling.
