Arctic Mineral Resources master’s programme (120 ECTS)

The transition to green technologies and a low-carbon future is highly raw material intensive. A unique two-year master’s programme, Arctic Mineral Resources, addresses the future challenges of securing raw material supply.

The programme provides in-depth knowledge about designing mineral production processes and infrastructure, education on the economic and environmental aspects of mining as well as sustainable mine project development, focusing especially on sensitive Arctic environments in Greenland, Sweden and Finland.

The master’s programme is jointly organised by the Luleå University of Technology, the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Oulu.


The teaching is in English and the programme (120 ECTS) offers two study tracks:

  • Mineral Resource Management (double degree between DTU and LTU) - This track primarily addresses the skills needed within government, consultancies and various authorities, as well as the skills to communicate and interact with such stakeholders and the civil society.
  • Mineral Entrepreneurship (double degree between UO and LTU) - This track primarily addresses the skills needed within (junior) mining companies, consultancies or organizations active in the funding of mining projects.


Courses relate to management, administrational and infrastructure aspects of mining projects with focus on the special conditions of the Arctic region, including logistics, cold-climate construction and operations, stakeholder engagement in rural areas, and special environmental, societal, health and safety considerations. Integrated field and project assignments in collaboration with industry and authorities strengthen the entrepreneurial abilities of students.

All students are first enrolled at Luleå University of Technology, i.e. the first term for both tracks is given in Luleå. For the second term, the students move to Greenland (Arctic semester given by DTU) and Oulu (Nordic entrepreneur school at UO), respectively. The third term offers the choice between the two universities in each track. The fourth term is assigned to the master thesis and is also shared and co-supervised by the two universities in each track.

Join now and become one of the leading professionals in managing green mining in the forefront of the fight against climate change!
