This site contains the student study guide for the Master's Programme in European Mining, Minerals and Environmental Programme (EMMEP). Here you will find the programme curriculum as well as detailed guidelines for planning your studies. All the materials and instructions are for the students in the programme. If you are interested in applying to the programme, follow the link at the bottom of the site to the application page.

European Mining, Minerals and Environmental Programme (EMMEP) is a two-year (120 cr) Master's degree programme organized jointly by three European universities: Aalto University, RWTH Aachen, and Technical University of Delft. At Aalto University, the programme is offered jointly by the School of Engineering and the School of Chemical Engineering. The last student intake to the programme was in 2021. As of 2023, the programme continues with the name European Mining Course.

In academic year 2022-2023, European Mining Course is offered as structural exchange programme. For Aalto students this means that you can go to exchange to RWTH Aachen University or Montanuniversität Leoben and study a course package similar to the EMC Master's programme, but without triple degree. If you are interested in the structural exchange opportunity, please contact prof. Mikael Rinne (see Contacts).

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.
