The SUMA master programmes aim to train tomorrow’s industrial engineers in collaborative work in a global world and gather some of the best educational programmes in the field of sustainable materials engineering in Europe. They stimulate innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership and focus on circular (eco)design, materials substitution, life cycle engineering and circular economy design, materials processing and recycling, manufacturing, and innovation. They involve studies in two different institutions, an internship in a company and a master thesis in collaboration with a company.

Industrial approach

The establishment of the curricula of the SUMA masters is the result of an intense collaboration with various partners from industry. As such, we guarantee an impact and make sure that the SUMA master programmes are ‘fit for purpose’.

Summer School

A yearly summer school is organised by SUMA where all students from all different tracks gather in one location, exchange experiences and deepen their knowledge about a topic related to circular economy.

This activity has received funding from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union, under the Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation
