In this context, the programme is also to provide such knowledge and skills that allow the student to observe and critically review sustainability aspects, international aspects and ethical issues. The study programme is also intended to prepare the student for third-cycle studies.
By studying on this unique master programme in Resource Recovery, which is given by the Swedish Centre for Resource Recovery, your ability to analyze and resolve problems related to disposing, processing and recycling of residuals into useful products will be developed.
Such a useful and salable product can be an item to the automotive industry made from biological material which can easily be recycled. It could be biogas or ethanol to replace oil and petrol. Or electricity, heating and cooling produced sustainably by thermal treatment of waste. Why not fish feed in addition to solve a waste problem and also reduce the depletion of the oceans? Regardless of whether you will be working as a researcher or work in business and management and you will be a global community builder, with knowledge and skills to take on challenges in areas even not directly related to resource recovery.
In addition to agricultural, forestry and industrial waste currently there is more than 2 billion tons of domestic waste generated per year in the world. The waste causes significant environmental problems, but is also a resource that can be recycled.
This ensures that resource recovery, which already employs large numbers of people, will continue to be a growth industry. Potential employers are energy companies, bioprocess industries, consulting firms, research institutes, recycling companies, equipment manufacturers, government and other industries where you e.g. can work with product or process development, or work as the environmental manager at companies.
You also can choose to go on to graduate studies in the area, in Sweden or other countries, an option which is chosen by many of our students.
