Master program Mineral Resource and Process Engineering

International Course in German and English Language

The mining of mineral raw materials is the biggest “mass movement” in the world. More than 30 billion tons on stone, soil, ore and energy raw materials are mined annually. They form the basis of our modern way of living. The raw materials industry offers a variety of job challenges. Engineers develop and master large-scale technology and work in direct contact with natural resources.

Students of this master course unique in Germany decide either for the field of study Mineral Resource Engineering or for the field of study Process Engineering. From a pool of modules they put together their individual study program, which -next to classical teaching- includes E-Learning, many practical elements, simulation games and projects in self-studying. Integrated in this course is a research-orientated practical job in companies or organizations in the mineral resource segment. Besides academic engineering content, the course also teaches management competencies and thus prepares students for a later job as managers.
Teaching languages are English and German, the field of study “Mineral Resource Engineering” may also be completely studied in English.
