NTNUs Industrial Ecology Programme is a world leading academic programme in industrial ecology. The focus is on state-of-the-art methods for environmental systems analysis and strategies for policy and management, as well as on the application of such strategies and methods to critical systems.
Energy production, industrial product and process design, industrial symbiosis, sustainable consumption, environmental management, climate change, corporate social responsibility, policy analysis, sustainable buildings, transportation, infrastructure, and waste recycling are examples of areas we work with. We study how materials and energy flow within different systems, what factors influence these flows, and how environmental impacts can be reduced. Our research and expertise in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Material Flows Analysis (MFA) and Input-Output analysis (IO) is world-renowned.
The MSc in Industrial Ecology is a two-year full-time degree programme targeted toward both Norwegian and international students. All courses are taught in English.
