The EMC programme received the EIT Label, a quality seal awarded to top Master and PhD programmes which excel in shaping a new generation of students into game changers and innovators. Students of EIT Label programmes learn how to combine their specialist knowledge with key innovation and entrepreneurship skills to develop solutions to pressing societal challenges. At EIT RawMaterials, eligible EIT Label students also receive grants totaling EUR 9.000 and additional support for travel. The program is a two year (120 credit) program leading to a Joint MSc degree. It consists of 3 semesters of courses and a 1 semester thesis project. Students are stimulated and assisted to carry out an internship. Please watch this video clip with information about the course contents.
Teaching is carried out by good quality staff of the organizing and other universities supplemented, by a pool of external experts from academia and industry. Students increase their self-learning ability culminating in a thesis that demonstrates their ability to integrate all their acquired knowledge and skills. The language of instruction of the entire program, courses and examination, is English.
