(MSc in) Industrial ecology
The MSc programme recruits international and Norwegian students with a variety of disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. Through a focus on group work, projects, and contact with industry and government, the MSc Programme provides an exciting learning environment, which extends beyond classroom teaching.
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. This includes organizing social events and easing the transitition for newly arriving program students. Symbiosis also promotes awareness of Industrial Ecology by engaging with companies, organizations, and other student groups.
