Big miners drilling

Welcome to the European Mining, Minerals and Environmental Program

EMMEP is 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:

Since 2016 EMMEP offers two options: 
- European Mining Course (EMC, a 2 year triple degree, EIT labelled, MSc program), for detailed information see here.
- European 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 one of the two EMMEP options 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. The societal impact of the subjects covered by the EMC form a very important aspect of the program, as is illustrated by this video

A brochure of EMMEP can be downloaded from here. The partner universities also offer local MSc programs in related subjects, which are offered in the English language. An overview can be found here. A video about the EMC - EIT labelled program can be watched here and a for short FAQ clip, with detailed information about the requirements and procedures to apply, please click here.

EMC was awarded the EIT-Label from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), an EU initiative aiming to spur innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe. The EIT-Label is a quality seal awarded to Master and PhD programmes demonstrating excellence in innovation and entrepreneurial education. A video clip concerning employment opportunities please click here. A brochure with summaries of the EIT labelled MSc programs can be downloaded from here. The EMC program is described on page 10-14.

Admission for 2019-2021 has opened on the 15th of October 2018! The application deadline is the 1st of April  2019.
