Welcome to the Joint Master: European Mining, Minerals and Environmental Program

The Joint Master EMMEP is a two-year joint degree program offered by  a  consortium of Europe's leading universities in resource engineering. Until the 2015-2017 program three options were offered, each by three of the following universities: Aalto University, Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), University of Miskolc, RWTH Aachen University and Wroclaw University of Technology. The organization and co-ordination of the EMMEP program is carried out by TU Delft.

In order to create more flexibility in the program, taking into account the individual interest and strength of the students, a stronger structure for the future has been  put into place starting September 2016:

The Joint Master EMMEP is a two-year MSc degree programme. In 2016 EMMEP offers two options: 
- Mining Engineering (EMC, joint tripple degree program)
- Mineral and Recycling Process Engineering (EMREC, exchange based international program).

Participating students study together at 2 or 3 universities for 1 or 3 semesters in different European countries. A one semester thesis project is carried out at one of the universities. Joining the EMMEP is an excellent opportunity to study abroad, meet foreign students, visit companies, and spend 2 years in an international environment. EMMEP builds on the strengths and the complementary expertise in earth sciences at these three universities.. It offers you a combination of study and research, leading to an outstanding qualification in mining engineering.

A brochure of EMMEP can be downloaded from here. The five partner universities also offer local MSc programs in related subjects, which are offered in the English language. An overview can be found here.

Admission for 2017-2019 will open in September 2016! The application deadline is on 1 March 2017.


The Federation of European Mineral Programs (FEMP) maintains the contacts with the supporting industry and the alumni.
