Mineral processing engineers of the future

European Mineral and Recycling Engineering Course (EMREC)

Please note that at the moment, we are no longer receiving applictions to this pilot program until further notice.

The two-year M.Sc. mobility program European Mineral and Recycling Engineering Course (EMREC) offers you a combination of study and research, leading to an outstanding qualification in mineral and recycling process engineering. EMREC is offered by two European leading universities in resource engineering: Aalto University and Delft University of Technology.

The program builds on the strengths and the complementary expertise in process engineering and sustainability of these two universities. This program replaces the formerly offered European Mineral Engineering Course (EMEC).

Admission for the EMREC Programme 2020-2022 based at Aalto University opens on December 3rd 2019 and closes on the 11th January 2020.
Admission for the EMREC Programme 2020-2022 based at Delft University of Technology opens on October 15th 2019 and closes on the 1st April 2020.

EMREC based at Aalto University

If you take part in EMREC based at Aalto University you are enrolled in the Master track Sustainable Metals Processing. The first two semesters you will follow courses in Aalto (60 ECTS). The third semester you will be located at Delft University of Technology as an exchange student following courses in Geo-Resource Engineering (30 ECTS). The fourth semester consists of a thesis project (30 ECTS).

Upon successful completion Aalto University issues your diploma.

Aalto University is a multidisciplinary research institution created in 2010 from the merger of three leading universities in Finland (Helsinki University of Technology, Helsinki School of Economics and University of Art and Design Helsinki). The main campus of Aalto University is located in Otaniemi, Espoo, which is a neighboring city to the capital Helsinki.
At Aalto, there are about 20,000 degree-seeking students. The students are supported by approximately 5,000 staff members, of which 380 are professors.

EMREC based at Delft university of Technology

If you take part in EMREC based at Delft University of Technology you are enrolled in the Master track Geo Resource Engineering. The first semester you will follow courses in Delft (30 ECTS). The second semester you will be located at Aalto University as an exchange student following courses in Sustainable Metals Processing (30 ECTS). The last two semester you will follow courses on Material Science Engineering (20 ECTS) or Resources and Recycling engineering (20 ECTS), followed by a thesis project (40 ECTS).

Upon successful completion Delft University of Technology issues your diploma.

With more than 13,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 4,500 employees, Delft University of Technology is one of the largest universities in The Netherlands. The university is internationally recognised for its cutting-edge research on technical subjects.
Delft annually awards degrees to hundreds of engineers and technologists who go on to excel in science and business.
