Program Description

MSc in industrial ecology

Study an MSc in Industrial Ecology at Leiden University

Industrial ecology is an emergent scientific discipline that promotes a systemic approach to human problems, integrating technical, environmental and social aspects.

It is argued that this approach will show the way to sustainable development. For that reason, industrial ecology is considered to be the ‘toolbox for sustainable development’ or the ‘science of sustainability’.

The master’s in industrial ecology is a co-operation between two Dutch universities:

  • Leiden University (Faculty of Science)
  • Delft University of Technology (Faculty of Applied Sciences)

Both universities deliver an equivalent contribution to the overall teaching program.
