Students at Industrial Ecology

The Student Organisation - Symbiosis

Symbiosis was founded in 2009 with the goal of improving the social and academic experience for Industrial Ecology students studying at NTNU. Symbiosis helps our new arrivals feel welcome, creates a community through social events, and promotes awareness of Industrial Ecology by engaging with companies, organizations, and other student groups.
