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 .
Students graduating from the master’s programme in Sustainable Technology have a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills adapted to work with sustainable development, both in the private and public sectors.
The interdisciplinarity of the programme together with the ability to address complex problems, system views and critical thinking makes the student a valuable employee in many kinds of industry and organisations.
