Description

The Masters Programme in Economic Geology is a collaboration between the departments of Geology and Geophysics and the Mining School of the University of Oulu, with extensive international linkages.

The programme will be taught entirely in English and comprises 22 modules, including courses in magmatic, hydrothermal and sedimentary ore deposits, structural geology for economic geologists, mining geology, geometallurgy, sampling methods, GIS applications, as well as environmental geochemistry.

Employment opportunities for graduates

Northern Finland is currently experiencing an unparalleled mining boom, making the area one of the exploration and mining powerhouses of Europe. The minerals sector may become one of the key foundations of the Finnish economy as commodity prices are bound to continue their rise on the long term and demand from China and other emerging economies is predicted to grow. These factors ensure employment opportunities for graduates as well as funding opportunities for future research projects.
