The aim of the master’s degree study program "Advanced Mineral Resources Development (AMRD)" is the acquisition of knowledge and skills to develop sustainable and environmentally safe methods in mining and reclamation with a glance to economic aspects.
Study program AMRD is based on an international study on the three partner universities: TU Bergakademie Freiberg (Germany, Freiberg), Montanuniversitaet Leoben (Austria, Leoben) and National Mining University, (Ukraine, Dnipropetrovsk).
In the master's degree program “Advanced Mineral Resources Development” natural sciences, engineering and economics are combined. Education in the three partner universities enables to get intercultural competencies, allowing management personnel to advance in the global resource company.
The program provides students with knowledge and skills for independent scientific work in the field of environmentally safe mining and reclamation with regard to economic aspects (study programm, download).
