Welcome to EMerald
Master’s Programme in Resources Engineering test

EMerald is an Erasmus Mundus and  EIT-labelled Master’s programme created to establish the right balance between knowledge of resources and process-engineering techniques.
A sustainable supply of raw materials is vital for the future of Europe. Become part of our mission to achieve this balanced vision.

Towards a more Circular Economy

It is the unique signature of EMerald to bridge the gap between geological exploration and mineral processing by offering innovative education in geo-metallurgy. However, when considering the circular economy paradigm, it is also obvious that the rapidly developing urban mining sector in Europe needs a similar curriculum in eco-metallurgy. The ambition here is to help close the loop in a resource-efficient way by forming professionals who know the processing challenges and the need to meet targets in terms of recyclability. Therefore, based on these needs-analysis in the raw material sector, the new EMerald program has been implemented in order to offer a specialization during the second year in primary resources (LTU) or in secondary resources (TUBAF).

EMerald Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD)

An Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) is a prestigious, integrated, international study programme, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions (HEIs) and, where relevant, other partners with specific expertise and interest in the study programme.
