EIT-Labelled Master Programmes

International Master Programme in Advanced Materials: Innovative Recycling
The AMIR master’s programme focuses on the raw materials value chain, with particular emphasis on recycling.

One of the main objectives of the programme is to educate students to become highly-skilled European professionals with expertise in various types of materials. This expertise will enable them to develop, on a large and ambitious scale, new methods for materials recycling. In addition, the AMIR programme includes classes on transversal skills such as innovation, ethics, intellectual property, life cycle assessment, sustainability and advanced research strategies. Therefore, students will develop a deep entrepreneurship mind-set with the help and expertise of associated businesses, incubators and innovation services as well as a large panel of industries. The AMIR programme is supported by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.

Master in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability
AMIS is a master’s programme in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability.

The primary objective of the programme is to provide students with an understanding of the full raw materials value chain and a mind-set for innovation and entrepreneurship focusing on sustainability. AMIS tackles this challenge by focusing on three themes — all of which are central themes of EIT RawMaterials: substitution of critical or toxic materials in products for optimised performance, material chain optimisation for end-of-life products and product and service design for the circular economy.

EMerald Master in Resources Engineering (Innovative Education in Geometallurgy and Circular Economy)
The EMerald master’s programme was created to address the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource-efficient Europe.

When the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also noted that raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage. The EMerald master’s programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mind-set and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources on a circle that continues by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of urban mines (circular economy). The EMerald programme is supported by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.

Master in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Integration in Mining
Unlock Your Potential: Join the MEITIM EIT-Labelled Master's Programme in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology Integration in Mining

The shift towards a digital and carbon-free economy has created a need for new engineering professionals in the mining industry. Innovation and technology integration have become vital for the mining industry's development across all stages of the mining value chain. Digitalisation is expected to reduce costs, improve efficiency, productivity, and environmental standards while transforming mining processes. The mining sector is under pressure from governments and shareholders to meet decarbonisation targets and improve safety at mining sites. Skilled professionals with advanced technical knowledge and an understanding of the full raw materials value chain are essential for building continuous improvement into a company's workstream and transforming knowledge into solutions and business.

Participating universities:
  1. 1Technical University of Madrid, Spain
  2. 2Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland
  3. 3Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology, Finland
Master in Raw Materials Exploration and Sustainability
Develop a thorough knowledge of the raw materials value chain and its multifaceted ramifications.

Raw Material Exploration and Sustainability (RaMES) is a two year, 120 ECTS MSc degree that brings together expertise on raw materials and circular economy principles with the objective of educating a new generation of entrepreneurially-oriented geologists and engineers.

RaMES is designed as a blend between a Resources Geology curriculum and a set of crucial subjects for mastering the exploration and deployment of raw materials as a sustainable process. The programme includes lectures on mineral deposits, material sciences, industrial ecology, entrepreneurship, and mineral economics. It focuses on the full-fledged ramifications of the raw material value chain from a geological perspective, in order to foster a new class of sustainability and business concerned specialists.

Master in Mining Engineering
Transforming the European extractive industry with the RaVeN mining engineering program's holistic approach to resources and sustainability

Europe requires a skilled workforce in the raw materials industry for the development of innovative technologies and future industries.There is a significant imbalance between raw material acquisition and consumption in Europe, which requires a greater commitment to securing supply chains. To address this challenge, the RaVeN EIT-Labelled master's programme in Mining Engineering offers an innovative education programme. The programme emphasizes a comprehensive approach to resources, with a focus on a holistic value chain and closing the gap between the supply of and demand for raw materials. The programme follows an active learning path that involves students and seeks unconventional solutions for a more self-contained and sustainable economy. The programme is a collaboration between three university partners with a broad geographical and cultural spectrum, contributing expertise and an entrepreneurial mindset to the programme.

International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management
Sustainability is more than just a buzzword.

Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility and also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme — the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials. The SINReM programme is supported by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union.

Participating universities:
  1. 1Ghent University, Belgium
