The Sustainability Engineering and Management master’s programme at Linköping University deals with the multifaceted challenge of developing products, services and technical systems that contribute to increased resource-effectiveness and sustainability.

About

It is well-known that economic development and human welfare depend on the availability of raw materials and energy. However, the exploitation of such natural resources has many environmental implications such as climate change, resource scarcity and the uncontrolled dispersal of hazardous substances. The Sustainability Engineering and Management course is offered by Linköping University.

In times of global environmental problems and concerns about the long-term availability of natural resources such as metals and minerals, incentives for using materials and energy in more intelligent and efficient ways are increasing among governments, companies and other organisations.

Career opportunities

Environmental engineering, including renewable energy solutions, is one of the fastest growing business sectors in Sweden as well as in many other countries. The Sustainability Engineering and Management programme qualifies students for engineering positions in companies and authorities dealing with energy consulting, investment strategies, development of local and regional systems for energy distribution and generation, development of new products and services, renewable energy, environmental consulting, waste management and recycling and strategic environmental management. Several former students have also chosen a career within academia, pursuing PhD studies at Linköping University or at other universities throughout the world.
