Studienkonzept

The degree programme Sustainable Mining and Remediation Management imparts knowledge and skills to the students for self-reliant scientific work in the fields of environmentally friendly mining, mining remediation and vitalisation of industries.

The programme is based on the worldwide unique German know-how on mining remediation, especially for uranium, lignite and ore mining. A further part in this context is brownfield revitalisation. It was created as a concept of a unique, research oriented study programme.

The study programme combines natural, engineering and business sciences, environment law and general management of georesources, hence theory and praxis in a unique way. It contains the following basic courses in mining, remediation and geoscience (lectures, seminars and practical training):

  • Reclamation
  • Brownfield Revitalisation
  • Radioactivity
  • Mine Water: Hydrogeology and Modeling/ Chemistry and Treatment
  • Biotechnology in Mining

Beyond that are offered basic courses in management, economy and finance:

  • Management and Finance of Mining Operations along the Life Cycle
  • Project and Contract Management
  • Licensing, Stakeholder Involvement and Expectation Management

The subject-specific basis modules partially are offered in the first and second semesters in the form of block courses (i.e. 6 CP). The third semester includes the Master's seminar and Master's thesis. In the Master's seminar Sustainable Mining and Remediation Management with colloquium the  students will get a specific topic for their work as well as hints for the literature study. The compulsory core is supplemented with block courses of choice. Depending on their interests, students will be offered the possibility to take courses in German language, soil and rock mechanics or practical trainings in mining companies or free choice modules.

The study objective is the acquirement of the degree Master of Science.

Application requirements
