Industrial Ecology is the study of flows of materials and energy in industrial and consumer activities and the effects these flows have on the environment. It considers influences of economic, political, regulatory, and social factors on our global use and transformation of resources. Industrial ecology consists of sustainable development, climate change mitigation and circular economy. You will learn data science and systems thinking to analyze and discuss core aspects of sustainability such as climate mitigation, energy and resource use, circular economy, and biodiversity. You will learn the analytical tools relevant for today’s society, and how to apply these to improve sustainability as it relates to climate, energy, waste, biodiversity, resources, circular economy, and sustainable production and consumption. These are the skills that qualify you for a researcher or consultant career. You will gain knowledge about environmental pressures and how to critically evaluate solutions.
