International Master of Science in Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Resources
The ENTER programme aims to create mechanical and process engineers with a specialisation in maintenance engineering for the raw materials sector.

In today's economy, technical education falls short of meeting the evolving demands of the engineering job market. Additionally, there is a growing need for new small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), particularly in areas such as spare parts handling, auxiliary services, and recycling. Investment in startups or small-scale businesses related to mechanical and process engineering, particularly in raw materials, remains low. Moreover, there is a pressing need for outsourcing, expanding networks, and forming partnerships in East and South-East Europe (ESEE).

ENTER aims to stem the brain drain from local communities and promote a circular economy by cultivating highly skilled professionals and entrepreneurs specializing in maintenance engineering. Additionally, it aims to foster technological advancement and competence building while facilitating commercial know-how and technology transfer for specific operations in the raw materials industry. Furthermore, ENTER seeks to foster the growth of startups in the ESEE region.
