You who are opting for this Masters course will get in touch with many different topics, such as biotechnology and energy technology and materials. The courses address both international and national (Swedish) aspects. Since the training is linked to the successful research conducted in the field at the Swedish Centre for Resource Recovery, you will get in close contact with our researchers and with research edge. Our network of companies, research institutes and municipalities also ensures that you get an education with a content that makes you attractive to potential employers.
In the first year you get an overview of how resources are managed internationally and nationally (in Sweden), trends and legislation. Characterization of waste is important to select the right recycling method. You study the combustion and gasification of waste into electricity, heat and fuels and biological methods and techniques for the production of biofuels such as biogas and bioethanol from waste and other resources. You may get in touch with Life Cycle Analysis as a tool to assess which method may be the most appropriate for the environment.
During the second year, you get the opportunity to further extend your knowledge in a chosen area by participating in a research project for a full study year. The goal for you is to produce a draft of a research report or scientific article.
During the studies great emphasis will be on oral and written presentations and you will improve your ability to obtain and evaluate information and research results in the field.
