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 program 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 program, you will specialize in biorefining and related industries in the circular economy.

The Master's Program 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. Part of the courses has teaching sessions with a fixed schedule, whereas most assignments have a flexible schedule. There are no physical in-class sessions, but some online lectures are given during regular office hours.

Because the program is based on distance learning, international applicants from outside the EU cannot apply for a residence permit for the studies.
