Welcome to EMerald
Master’s Programme in Georesources Engineering

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.

The EMerald master in georesources engineering aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mind-set, capable of identifying and sustainably managing the mineral and metal resources that are essential for the green energy transition.
The energy and environmental transition is a major challenge for securing the well-being of future generations. The EU has adopted a very proactive policy in this area. Clearly expressed in the Green Deal, this strategy must absolutely be supported by a strengthening of training in science and technology.
With a unique position at the interface between Earth Sciences and Engineering, the two-year master (120 ECTS) is designed for students with a background in both geology and applied sciences (mining, metallurgy, chemistry). The master, fully taught in English, offers an innovative curriculum from hands-on experiences in the university labs to the use of digital tools. It is jointly organized by 4 top-level European
Universities, each of which hosts the students for at least a semester and delivers a Degree.
