Master programs provides the same title for the degree - the Master. Postgraduate studies such as Masters of Science are shortened MSc. The Master of Science in Management program or the Master of Science of Management education are postgraduate programs in common management. This means that students receive an academic education with depth of reflection and abstraction. Masters usually can be classified as Master of Science (MSc) or the popular Master of Arts (MA). The Master of Science (MSc) usually is given for successfully achieving postgraduate programs with a science or technical point of convergence.

Materials science is a field that strives to meet the needs of manufacturing and other industries that rely on resources. As natural and renewable sources are diminishing, students who become material scientists may develop new supplies by applying chemistry, biotechnology, and engineering.

Study objectives

Biomass refining constitutes the sustainable processing of biomass into a spectrum of marketable products and energy. The key technological contents of the major is treatment of biomass with tailored mechanical, chemical, biochemical and thermochemical processes leading to selective and efficient fractionation of the biomass components into functional fractions, and further refining of the fractions to fibres, polymers, chemical compounds and fuels or their reactants. The focus point of the major is the physiological function and structure of plants as well as the reactivity of the chemical components of lignocellulosic biomass in the conversion processes. Great attention is paid to process integration modelling, taking into account recycling and waste management. This includes the development of an integrated, rational and transparent evaluation framework for sustainable assessments, such as Life Cycle Assessments (LCA).... [-]

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage.

The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the Master course will focus on two aspects:... [-]

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

As global and EU populations increase along with well-being and welfare, consumption per capita is also increasing. In the EU especially, consumption has outpaced production, particularly with respect to the more complicated, resource-intensive technologies and products that have become part of daily life. As a result, the importance of recycling and the circular economy will continue to increase in order to diversify our sources of supply and meet our needs.

AMIS is a Master programme in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability. The primary objective of the programme is to provide students with an understanding of the full raw materials value chain and a mindset for innovation and entrepreneurship focusing on sustainability. AMIS tackles this challenge by focusing on three themes – all of which are central themes of EIT RawMaterials:... [-]
