Description of the programme

The European Mining Course (EMC) is an internationally recognised triple degree masters programme. The two-year (120 credits) programme is organized jointly by three European universities: Aalto University, RWTH Aachen, and Montanuniversität of Leoben. At Aalto University, the programme is offered jointly by the School of Engineering and the School of Chemical Engineering

The European Mining Course (EMC) is a Master degree which covers every aspect of the life cycle of mineral resources. Our partner universities provide the highest level of mining education through a structured, flexible exchange. The EMC is based on the expertise of the partner universities within Mining and Minerals Engineering. The focus of the programme is to provide state-of-the-art education in the fields of mining engineering by means of environmentally and economically sustainable systems and technologies, including circular economy.

Prior to 2023, the programme was called Master's Programme in European Mining, Minerals and Environmental Programme (EMMEP). As of 2023, the programme continues with the name European Mining Course.

European Mining Course, Master of Science (Technology)

The need of mineral-based materials is growing globally, partly related to the new green technology. Applications such as windmills and electric vehicles need traditional metals, but also many high-tech metals that support the environmentally sustainable future. Re-use of metals is important part in the materials cycle, but it will not satisfy the increasing demand of metals. Minerals need to be extracted from the earth’s crust far into the future. The European Mining Course (EMC) aims to train experts who possess wide-ranging skills and abilities to respond to this demand.
