In the today’s economy, technical education does not meet current requirements of the employment market for engineers. Moreover, new small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are in great demand, e.g. there is a space for enterprises that specialise inspare parts handling, auxiliary services, and recycling. Start-ups or small-scale businesses in mechanical and process engineering related to raw materials undergo low investments nowadays. Additionally, outsourcing, extending the network and establishing partnerships in East and South-East Europe (ESEE) is of a high priority.
The programme emphasises the employability of students by developing their career skills and it aims at for learning outcomes in both hard and soft skills.
The programme is implemented as a triple degree programme between LUT University, Freiberg University of Mining and Technology (TUBAF), Germany, and Home University (University of Sarajevo, UNSA, University of Miskolc, ME, or Dnipro University of Technology, DniproTech).
Applications to this Master's programme are submitted through the programme website.
Master's Programme in Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Resources (ENTER) aims to create highly qualified process engineers in the field of raw materials sector from the ESEE region (East and South-East Europe) and for the ESEE region. In this programme, you will learn to:
- Avoid the brain-drain of local communities and promoting circular economy in the ESEE region.
- Create highly qualified professionals or entrepreneurs with a specification in maintenance engineering for the ESEE region.
- Contribute to technological advancement and competence building in the ESEE region.
- Support commercial know-how and technology transfer for the subject-specific operations in the raw materials industry.
- Encourage start-ups in the ESEE region.
Degree structure and studies
The Master's Programme in Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Resources is a two-year programme.
After completing the programme, you will receive three degrees from three universities: Master of Science in Technology (major subject: chemical engineering) (LUT), Master of Process Engineering (TUBAF), and Master of Science from home university. The degree is 120 ECTS credits.
The programme is divided into four semesters.
The Master's Programme in Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Resources trains you for process and product engineering positions, specialist roles or project/team leader positions in raw materials sector.
The programme also enables you to conduct research and pursue an academic career.
Possible jobs for graduates are process engineer, product development engineer, engineering consultant, solution and technology provider, researcher, etc.
