Course specific prerequisites

Previous studies in environmental science is an advantage.

Aim

Provide an introduction to the Master's Programme Industrial Ecology.

Provide a systems perspective on the industrial society, and based on this give insights into restrictions and possibilities that follow from the need to transform the industrial society to conform to a sustainable development.

Content

Provide an introduction to the Master's Programme Industrial Ecology, which has as aim to give students knowledge, skills and tools necessary for dealing with the increasingly complex environmental issues.

Provide a systems analytic perspective on society s transformation and use of land, energy and materials. Based on this, give insights into restrictions and opportunities that follow from the need to transform society to conform to a sustainable development, taking into account that the implications of sustainable development vary depending on, e.g., stage of industrialization in a country.

The students will be presented with perspectives on what knowledge and tools are required for analysing the environmental impacts of societal use of land, energy and materials, and for changing this use into a more sustainable direction. This includes technological aspects of how to decouple the environmental impact from economic growth, economic and management aspects of industrial systems, and the need for further development and improved well-being in the less industrialized countries.

Organisation

The course is under development and the organisation remains to be decided. In addition to lectures, seminars and group excercises may be part of the course.
