Degree structure and studies
The Master's Programme in Biorefineries is a two-year distance learning programme. The programme leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.
The programme includes core, advanced specialisation, and elective studies as well as a Master's thesis.
Core studies, 19 ECTS credits, include introduction courses to M.Sc. studies and research in the field of biorefineries and chemical engineering in general. They also include studies on sustainability and the connection between technology and society.
Advanced specialisation studies, 58 ECTS credits, in biobased process engineering deal with, for example, alternative biorefineries and enabling technologies, e.g. separation technologies, biological wastewater treatment and bioeconomy.
In elective studies, you can choose any discipline at LUT or other universities to complete 120 ECTS credits.
The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, is an advanced research project during the programme's fourth semester. The Master's thesis requires approximately six months of full-time work.
