Having emerged from the two institutes BBK I and BBK III in 2015, the Institute of Mineral Resources Engineering (MRE) looks back at a long tradition in mining education and mineral resources research in Aachen.
Today, our team comprises senior and junior research fellows from different fields who are supported by technical and administrative staff and a dynamic group of student workers.
Our two locations at Wuellnerstrasse and Lochnerstrasse are situated in the heart of Aachen. Here we conduct hands-on research in close collaboration with the industrial sector as well as with international research institutions.
The organization of international conferences and regular research publications, as well as our commitment towards the education of future mineral resources engineers are our dedicated contributions towards a future sustainable mining.
