IndEcol Apprentice Program - An early start to research
One of the advantages of the Master's program in Industrial Ecology, is that students can choose among many courses. The idea of a stipend is to associate a student earlier with a research group or research project in order to provide extra motivation for acquiring knowledge both through courses and outside reading. Students will thus be able to make a more substantial contribution to the research at IndEcol.
The apprentice program is especially for students who know early what they want and who are willing to put in some extra effort to produce publishable research results. Students who want to take more time to find out what they want and to explore the content of Industrial Ecology may be better off waiting until the final year before choosing a research subject.
Students admitted to the IndEcol Apprentice Program are eligible for in principle 100 hours paid work as research assistant according to the NTNU standard rate. After consulting with the research advisor, less or more hours can be negotiated if considered appropriate. The work may be carried out over more than one semester. After completion of the work, students will receive a certificate acknowledging their participation in the IndEcol Apprentice Program.
