The Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering is committed on supporting the international mobility of students. Ten to twenty percent of each graduating class takes part in study abroad programs, mainly at German universities. To smooth the path of those studying abroad we have agreements with MSc programs in other universities regarding the acceptance or conversion of credits earned abroad.
The Faculty is a member of the Federation of European Mineral Programs (FEMP), within which three courses are available: the European Mining Course (EMC), the European Mineral Engineering Course (EMEC), and the European Geotechnical and Environmental Course (EGEC). Institutions taking part in the work of the FEMP are: Aalto University, Delft University of Technology, Miskolc University, RWTH Aachen University, Wroclaw University of Technology and the University of Exeter (Camborne School of Mines). The courses are taught in English following a curriculum that has been mutually agreed upon. The EMEC course has been transformed into a two-year master’s course from 2014, in which two months of teaching are to be provided in Miskolc to both international and University of Miskolc students.
The primary means of international mobility for students is the Integrated Lifelong Learning Program European Exchange Program (the former Erasmus and Leonardo programs). The Faculty currently offers 26 subjects taught in English to participants.
In addition to these opportunities, the departments and institutes of the Faculty also have international research partner institutions who host our students, especially for carrying out thesis-related research, within the framework of programs such as DAAD, Norway Grants, etc.
