Content and Structure

 

EMerald is a two-year master program designed to focus on the following major aspects of georesources engineering : Characterisation, Processing and Modelling. It is organised in 4 semesters and  accounts for 120 ECTS or 30 ECTS per semester. Academic year starts in September. The first semester is in Liège, the second semester in Nancy, the third semester in Lulea and the fourth semester in one of the four partner-Universities.

*  Each student will add up 30ECTS out of the 35ECTS according to their background

**Students will choose between both courses.



 The consortium will deliver a triple diploma:

• Master en "Geosciences: Planètes, Ressources, Environnement " - ENSG Nancy

• Master of Science - Major: Geosciences - LTU

• Ingénieur Civil des Mines et Géologue - ULg



► Language of Instruction

The EMerald master is an English-taught program. However, the mobility will make sure that all students get acquainted with different european languages (German, French, Swedish) and cultures. This might be an additional incentive. French for example is often required for geoengineers aiming to work in Africa.


► ECTS: European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System

ECTS system is a student-centred system aimed at facilitating student's mobility and based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a program, objectives preferably specified in terms of learning outcomes and competences to be acquired. An Erasmus Mundus Master Course carries between a minimum of 60 and up to maximum 120 ECTS credits, where student workload generally amounts to around 1500-1800 hours per year and one credit stands for around 25-30 working hours (meaning lectures, seminars, independent reading, research and academic writing, exams, etc). EMerald is a 120 ECTS credits program.
