Search MSc Programs in Sustainable Economic Studies 2019 in Ghent in Belgium

A Master of Science or MSc is a postgraduate degree typically in the fields of sciences and social sciences. MSc may be course-based, research-based, or a mixture of the two.

A program in sustainable economic studies can introduce students to the interconnected relationship between the ecosystem and the economy and can address the environmental concerns of abuse within that relationship. Courses may cover infrastructure and the long-term use of natural resources to support human existence.

Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a federal state in Western Europe. It is a founding member of the European Union and hosts the EU's headquarters as well as those of several other major international organisations such as NATO.

Course content

The program Master of Science in Materials Engineering: sustainable materials aims at the study of properties, production or extraction, processing, use and recycling of a whole range of materials. This implies:

description and modeling of properties of a material chemical, mechanical and thermal processing aspects in materials engineering influence of the chemical composition and processing conditions on the structure and properties of materials in view of optimal performance the behavior of materials in different user circumstances and how degradation can be limited.

Dealing with limited resource availability worldwide in a sustainable way is an important objective of the course. Important materials dealt with are metals, synthetic materials, textiles, composites and ceramics. In order to specialize in specific types of materials, students can choose between two majors....

The increasing demand for raw materials, their price volatility, the production concentration and the market distortions imposed by some countries, confront Europe and other world regions with a number of challenges along the entire value chain. To tackle this supply risk challenge and to deal with environmental problems arising from too large emissions of waste (such as CO2), technological innovation is required with respect to exploration of new resources and sustainable primary mining, sustainable use of resources in specific products and production processes (e.g. substitution of critical metals in materials), prevention of waste generation, valorisation of secondary (alternative) resources and recovery/recycling of resources from end-of-life products....

The Challenge

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility but also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme – the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science, and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials....
