Master in Sustainable Materials
The SUMA master’s programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers to work collaboratively in a global world.

SUMA gathers together some of the best educational programmes in the field of sustainable materials engineering in Europe. The goal is to ensure young scientists obtain a solid background in chemistry and physics, with competences for designing and tailoring new material systems for specific functions and with a specific view to the sustainability of processes and technologies in the field of material development. SUMA puts a particularly strong focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership and takes a holistic approach to the materials paradigm by exploring circular (eco) design, materials substitution, life cycle engineering and circular economy design, materials processing and recycling, manufacturing and innovation.
