Top Masters of Science (MScs) in Belgium 2019

The Master of Science, or MSc, is an academic degree awarded to those who effectively complete about two years of intensive study on a given topic. Many MSc courses offer a combination of classroom and research-based curriculum.

Earning an advanced degree, like a Master of Arts, may advance a stalled career or help someone move in a new professional direction. These programs vary in length, but most take two to three years to complete with part-time or full-time course schedules.

Belgium is known as the heart of Europe and a hub for international networking. As international students in Belgium you be surrounded by a multicultural community.

Awarded the EIT Label in 2017

The Challenge

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility but also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme – the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science, and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials....

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

As global and EU populations increase along with well-being and welfare, consumption per capita is also increasing. In the EU especially, consumption has outpaced production, particularly with respect to the more complicated, resource-intensive technologies and products that have become part of daily life. As a result, the importance of recycling and the circular economy will continue to increase in order to diversify our sources of supply and meet our needs.

AMIS is a Master programme in Advanced Materials for Innovation and Sustainability. The primary objective of the programme is to provide students with an understanding of the full raw materials value chain and a mindset for innovation and entrepreneurship focusing on sustainability. AMIS tackles this challenge by focusing on three themes – all of which are central themes of EIT RawMaterials:... [-]

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.

Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016

The Challenge

The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage.

The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the Master course will focus on two aspects:... [-]

New technologies such as electric cars or renewable and ecological power supply systems require fundamental research in electrical (energy) engineering. DC grids (used in batteries, hydrogen systems, or to distribute and transport electrical energy in an environmentally friendly way with cable grids), electric cars, and power electronics are the latest technologies aiming to provide a green and environmentally friendly energy supply. Introducing intelligence (SMART technology) into our power supply reduces costs as well as increases reliability and accessibility for the end consumer. In a nutshell, this program will educate the pioneers needed to make the electrical energy supply future-proof. They will be pioneering the future!... [-]

MSc in Civil Engineering

This master is jointly organised by Vrije Universiteit Brussel in collaboration with Université Libre de Bruxelles, leading to a joint master's degree.

A major objective of our programme is to develop an in-depth understanding of the main aspects of analysis and design of all kinds of constructions and to provide a solid knowledge of material technology. An important issue is the optimisation of the form of structures and the material selection, with due consideration of their environmental impact, sustainability and life-cycle cost. Several systems are considered: conventionally reinforced or pre-stressed, either in steel or concrete, as well as those composed of novel materials like fibre-reinforced material systems. You can also wish to specialise in water resources. Courses on different aspects of water resources management (rivers, urban water, groundwater, water quality) are offered in close collaboration with our Master of Water Resources Engineering programme....
