O que eu aprenderei?

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 programme analyze and contribute to sustainable technical solutions in industry, consultancy, governmental agencies and research.

Programme aim

The programme 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, and large-scale urban planning processes. Industrial Ecology provides a solution-oriented engineering approach to environmental and sustainability problems. Hence, while it is important for graduates of the programme to have gained a broad understanding of environmental problems in nature, they should become experts in analytical tools that facilitate the suggestion of relevant measures or policies.

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.

Research and industry connections

The programme was developed by leading professionals at the Department of Energy and Environment who have a close contact with industry and authorities to ensure an educational profile that meets the needs of the target groups. The core courses of the programme are closely connected to ongoing research at the Divisions of Environmental Systems Analysis and Physical Resource Theory. Both of these divisions have expanded over several years with research groups that cover a wide range of topics and have connections to international research networks, several different industrial sectors and policy processes. In addition, the Environment Economics Unit at University of Gothenburg gives one of the courses at the programme.

Chalmers' research and education in the field of environment and sustainability is very strong in general. In a recent ranking Chalmers ended up as the number one Swedish university in the environmental field, based on the connection between research and education and the popularity among students and employers. Chalmers' strength in this area is currently further developed by increased funding to strategically important research including for example Chalmers Energy Initiative, the Sustainable Transport Initiative and the Sustainable Production Initiative.
