MSc Track: European Mining Course
The Joint Master European Mining Course (EMC) offered by TU Delft, RWTH Aachen and Aalto University covers every aspect of the life cycle of mineral resources. It is a Master programme designed to provide a solid understanding of the global mining industry and takes a life-cycle approach by covering the entire mining value chain. It offers a state-of-the-art technical basis in resource modelling, mine design, and economic evaluation. Technical knowledge is also supplemented with topics on business economics, ethics, environmental engineering, and a clearly defined and structured programme for the management of health safety and environment.
EMC aims to train professionals who will be the future decision-makers and game-changers in the mineral resources and associated engineering trade, with a strong vision of the future developments in this industry. EMC supports the development of students into adaptive, innovative and entrepreneurial-oriented engineers capable of identifying the best approach to obtain optimal value from mineral ore deposits.
During the two years of the programme you will study at all three partner universities and due to the EIT label students are eligible for a 9000 euro scholarship.
Note: Whether EMC students are eligible for the EIT RawMaterials scholarship is under negotiation and subject to change.
