Employment Opportunities for Graduates

In the last decade, Finland experienced a strong revival of the mining and exploration industry as a result of the commodity boom. Several new mines have opened and the minerals sector has become one of the key foundations for the economy in northern Finland. With this background, we offer a practice-oriented education that prepares our graduates for a career in the industry or in ore deposit-related research.
