Raw Materials Engineering

What can I expect during the master's programme?

Building on the bachelor's programme in Mineral Resources Engineering, students may pursue further studies and choose from a range of optional subjects as their focus. The first two semesters comprise subject-specific classes. The third semester is for the preparation of a master's thesis.


You can choose from the following options in the master's programme:

  • Mineral Processing involves the processing of primary and secondary resources into high-quality products by means of physical and chemical processes. These include comminution, sizing, separation processing, dewatering, dedusting, agglomeration and leaching.
  • Building Materials and Ceramics pursues academic training in the field of non-metallic inorganic materials (construction materials, mineral binders, refractories, ceramics and glass).
  • Mineral Processing and Energy Systems focuses on the processing of energy resources, the usage of energy and production and supply issues. This subject is offered in the form of a joint diploma with the École Nationale Supérieure des Mines in Paris.
