The sustainable production of energy, food, chemicals and materials is a major challenge for us today and for future generations.

Production has until now been largely based on fossil raw materials, which has, in turn, caused serious environmental challenges. The use of renewable raw materials where it is technically possible and economically feasible is one of the corner technologies for mitigating climate change and saving scarce natural resources.

Biorefineries implement a wide range of technologies and materials, and this programme examines them with an open mind and a wide scope, including the opportunities they offer in terms of new competencies, solutions and critical assessments. In this Master's programme, you will specialise in biorefining and related industries in the circular economy.

The Master's Programme in Biorefineries is delivered as flexible distance learning independent of place or time. It is well suited for people already in the working world in Finland or abroad, aiming for professional development and the upgrading of qualifications. This programme is a practical solution to practical lifelong learning.

Note, due to the distance learning nature of the programme, international students applying to this programme from outside EU, are unable to apply for the residence permit for studies. There are nevertheless some compulsory meeting days that require presence at LUT Lappeenranta campus. Students travelling from outside the Schengen area must apply for a tourist visa.
