2022 European Mining Course

Structured Exchange 2022-2024

The European Mining Course (EMC) is a Master degree which covers every aspect of the life cycle of mineral resources.

The world recognised European Mining Courses (EMC) is offered as a structure exchange program for 2022.

Our partner universities for 2022 are RWTH Aachen, Aalto University and MU Leoben, they provide the highest level of mining education through a structured, flexible exchange.

The application details will be published shortly on the FEMP.org and our partners websites.

Structured Exchange

Semester 1. Oct 2022 - Jan 2023

MU Leoben

The MU Leoben provides courses with focus on deposit development, those include underground mining, deposit modelling and occupational safety.

Semester 2. April - Sept 2023

RWTH Aachen

RTWH Aachen will offer courses connec- ted to deposit sustainability. Courses address mine wastes, feasibility studies and mining and modelling.

Semester 3, Sept - Dec 2023

Aalto University

Aalto covers aspects around deposit characterisation, focusing on economic geology and mineral economics, mate- rials processing and synthesis and rock mechanics.

Semester 4, Feb - Aug 2024

Thesis, Home University

The thesis semester covers a 6-month 30 ECTS full-time thesis. Theses might be done with industry partners or at research facilities within the universities.

Exchange program

The European Mining Course (EMC) is an exchange master program hosted by three leading technical universities in Europe: - RWTH Aachen University (Institute of Mineral Resources Engineering (MRE)) - Aalto University (Helsinki), and - Montanuniversität Leoben. Alongside with students of these three uni- versities, there are numerous guests from Europe and from all over the world partici- pating in the EMC to explore the interna- tional world of mining within their master studies. The EMC covers every aspect of the life cycle of mineral resources. It is designed to provide a solid understanding of the global mining industry and takes a life-cyc- le 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 supplemented with topics on business economics, ethics, environmen- tal engineering and a clearly defined and structured program for the management of health, safety and environment. But there is more to the EMC than just stu- dying abroad! Through guest lectures from industry, excursions and industrial pro- jects, you get a direct insight into the inter- national mining industry and gather valua- ble contacts for your professional future. The EMC aims to train professionals who will be the future decision-makers in the mineral resources and associated engi- neering trade, with a strong vision of the future developments in this industry. EMC supports the development of students into adaptive, innovative and entrepreneurial- ly-oriented engineers capable of identify- ing the best approach to obtain optimal value from mineral ore deposits.
