New program for makers of the future
LUT University is currently building a new Master’s program in mining-engineering, together with EIT RawMaterials. Project MEITIM is working towards 2022, when students will first be approved to study the Master’s program in Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Technology Integration in Mining. This sets up graduates to become mining professionals of the future.
The training will be planned carefully together with universities, industry and research centers. The most visible part of the cooperation is a yearly IWSCO Workshop which concentrates on developing education. The first IWSCO (International Workshop on Skills and Competencies of the XXI Century Workforce) was provided in 2020.
During the first workshop specialists discussed the skills needed for future engineers, entrepreneurs, data-analysts and innovators.
