The engineering sector is one of the fastest changing fields. Today an understanding of sustainability and circular economy is a sought-after skill for any engineer. As an expert in your field you need the latest tools and knowledge to create sustainable solutions for whole systems.
With us you will gain current technical awareness of:
- environmental impacts from material and energy aspects in all types of engineering projects, and
- the range of modern sustainable materials and renewable energies.
You will study with our experts in sustainable materials, renewable energies and digital tools. In addition to this you will gain access to our network of partners that are the forefront of the circular economy transition in the Nordic region.
Upon completion of the study package you will have:
- a broad understanding of the complete life cycle of product manufacturing and construction projects and
- you will be confident in your role as a sustainable designer, innovator and decision maker.
Teaching and Assessment
All courses involve both online and in class studies.
- Individual learning diaries
- Online assignments
- Group projects
Build your understanding of the future professional role of engineers in the circular economy. You will learn the fundamentals of circularity, how to identify zero-waste solutions and how to consider evidence and identify potential couplings of processes as regenerative or restorative solutions.
Learn to understand the lifespan of a product and how we can make our products sustainable. You will get a deeper knowledge of how to perform life cycle assessments of engineering products and how to propose more sustainable solutions through scenario modelling.
Sustainability is a very important aspect of the field of engineering. We need to continuously find new solutions and be able to identify the potential environmental impacts that our decisions have. This course will guide you to become more aware of your ways of working and how you can have an awareness of the impacts of raw material extraction and processing, and their context within planetary boundaries.
