Sustainable Technology at KTH – Principles and Applications of Industrial Ecology

The courses in the programme cover a range of interdisciplinary subjects connected to industrial ecology. The students are introduced to tools and knowledge that will enable them to apply technology in a more sustainable way.

Since the programme covers a broad spectrum of courses, students can either choose their own specialisation, for example, more technology-oriented courses or more management-oriented ones, or choose to mix courses from different areas to acquire a broad knowledge in industrial ecology.

After completing all course work, students carry out a six month long degree project for their final term. The project is carried out in either an academic environment (university, research institute, or equivalent), or in a public or industrial setting (municipality, city, power plant, consulting agency or other industry/business). While suitable degree project topics may be proposed and assigned by programme lecturers, or by specialists from related industries/businesses, students are encouraged to define projects on their own, and to seek environments in which these can successfully be carried out.

The pedagogical concept applied in the learning process is to work with projects, best practice and case studies; consequently, considerable effort is put into training students in discussion, critical analysis and written and oral presentations. It is also a high priority to link courses and projects to practical experience through cooperation with companies, institutions and public authorities.

This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Architecture and Built Environment (at KTH).

Industrial ecology, system analysis and perspectives, cleaner production, circular economy, ecosystem performance, ecological economics, industrial symbiosis, environmental management and transition theory.
