About

The Industrial Ecology from Chalmers University of Technology aims to equip students with the competencies, knowledge and tools needed to analyze environmental impacts and resource constraints, to suggest and develop measures and to plan, lead, evaluate and follow up the effects of measures related to for example product development, land and resource use, energy systems.

Overview

Society faces immense challenges arising from pressure on the environment and the natural resources such as climate change, chemical risks and resource constraints on land, materials and energy. 

The complexities of these issues including technology development, social change, economic growth and environmental policy have created an increasing demand for knowledge and skills in the field of Industrial Ecology. 

Engineers from the Industrial Ecology from Chalmers University of Technology analyze and contribute to sustainable technical solutions in industry, consultancy, governmental agencies and research

Who should apply

Students who wish to develop analytical skills and learn tools that enable a professional career in a field where they can make a difference for sustainable development, including environmental strategy, research and assessment at more than one level in society, from more traditional engineering problems to changing industrial practice or international negotiations and policy making. 

The programme welcomes students from all fields of engineering as well as other relevant backgrounds including architecture, environmental science, physics and chemistry.

​Career opportunities

Engineers from the Industrial Ecology programme have interesting and broad career opportunities. Previous students from the programme have continued to jobs in industry, environmental consultancy firms, governmental agencies and research.

  • Industry: graduates from the programme work for example as environmental strategy analyst, project leaders at environmental divisions and in technology development. Examples of industrial sectors include energy, automobile, furniture, green buildings and process industry.
  • Environmental consultancy firms: e.g. life cycle analysis, systems analyses of energy resources and waste.
  • Governmental agencies: e.g. Swedish Energy Agency, Swedish Environmental Technology Council.
  • Research: Several students have also continued within academia both at Chalmers (Physical Resource Theory, Environmental Systems Analysis, Energy Technology, Logistics and Transportation, Shipping and Marine Technology) and other internationally known institutions.
