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.

note: since 2021, the EMC programme is no longer a member of EIT’s Label Academy.

MSc programmes per September 2022
As per September 2022 we are planning to redesign the master programme Applied Earth Sciences. If this process proceeds as planned, the subjects of the tracks mentioned below will be integrated in the master programme Applied Earth Sciences per September 2022. Students who enroll in the current track in September 2021, can continue this track until August 2024, after which a transition into the new master programme Applied Earth Sciences will apply. The curriculum of the new master programme will be published on our website as of August 2021. Please contact the study-advisors if you have urgent questions at this moment.

Key features of this track:
