About

The Sustainable Technology programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology is based on the concept of industrial ecology with a focus on the understanding of interactions between technical, economic, social and ecological systems and processes.

Overview

Industrial ecology is an interdisciplinary framework for designing and operating industrial systems as living systems interdependent with natural systems. It seeks to balance environmental and economic performance within an understanding of local and global ecological constraints.

The courses in the Sustainable Technology programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology 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. 

The first semester is dedicated to mandatory courses that will give you an insight in the concepts of industrial ecology, ecosystems and impact of socio-technical systems, system analysis tools used in decision-making and a good base for scientific work .
