Degree of Master (Two Years)
Sweden is Europe’s leading nation when it comes to mining and metallurgy. Due to the favourable geological conditions in northern Sweden, this part of the country has become the major ore producer in the European Union. It is within this environment that the ore and metal producing industry has developed and grown to become a world leader in production efficiency and automation. Sweden has also developed a strong reputation in other rock related areas such as tunnelling, infrastructure construction and production as well as commercialisation of industrial minerals and aggregates.In soil mechanics the focus areas are dam engineering, foundation engineering and cold climate engineering. All with a strong focus on the sustainable utilisation of resources while at the same time assuming social and environmental responsibility. In this fruitful environment, the mining equipment manufacturing industry, with brands familiar to most mining professionals around the world, has developed world-class mining machinery.
The programmeis comprised of a package of advanced courses, additional higher courses and a M.Sc. thesis project. Through the lay-out of the program with compulsory courses and a number of advanced optional courses a high degree of specialisation is possible. The student can specialise in:
Productionplanning and automation
In the concluding M.Sc. thesis project this specialisation can be confirmed.
Luleå University of Technology aim to be the first choice for the inquisitive M.Sc. candidate and the programme in Mining and Geotechnical Engineering constitute a good base for future careers in the global mining sector.Soil and rock materials are used in a wide range of applications, which is why this specialization opens many possibilities for future employment, both regarding work position and geographic location.
Luleå University of Technology is the only Swedish university offering education in the field of mining and geotechnical engineering and with a strong R&D profile. TheDivision of Mining and Geotechnical Engineering constitute the biggest research and educational unit for soil and rock related research in Sweden, which is also significant on the European scale. The university is well known for its strong international profile with students and faculty exchanges involving a number of universities throughout the world.
Applicants to the M.Sc. programme in Civil Engineering with specialization in Mining and Geotechnical Engineering at Luleå University of Technology must fulfil the requirements for admission regarding basic knowledge in mining, rock mechanics, and soil mechanics.
