In this Master's programme, you will learn how to replace goods with services if it is more efficient and better for the environment. For example, information technology ... [+]

The existing economic system is based on the "take, make and dispose of" approach powered mostly by fossil fuels. The assumption is that increasing economic growth produces so much surplus that arising adverse environmental impacts could be dealt with.

However, the system keeps growing only if there are enough resources for transformation, sinks for waste, credit for investments and economic growth.

The circular economy offers an alternative. It aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value. It aims to decouple economic growth from the consumption of finite resources by closing the loop of product life cycles. The system in which materials are transformed into useful goods and services endlessly is powered by renewable energy systems.... [-]

We all want to build a society which will enable our children to prosper.

As the complexity and urgency of many sustainability problems increase, we can no longer think about our investment needs only in terms of technical products with great performance.

In every investment decision, a growing need to contribute more effectively to sustainability challenges has to be taken into account.

Climate warming, weakening air quality, water pollution and waste are examples of current global sustainability challenges. Sometimes traditional technologies offer the best solutions, but we also need to integrate novel solutions with complex environmental problems.

Solutions to these global challenges, such as environmental sustainability, call for systems thinking. We need to understand the context in which a product is going to operate and whether it relates to the need to reduce emissions, use less oil-based fuel or water, end-of-life disassembly, or marketing in a region which taxes based on a footprint....

Every day, two million tons of sewage and industrial and agricultural wastewater is discharged into the water bodies.

Especially water treatment is inadequate in many parts of the world, and legislation concerning wastewater is constantly being tightened. Moreover, sustainability challenges us to reflect on water treatment in different ways.Instead of focusing on end-of-pipe treatment for pollution prevention, we should shift towards optimal resource utilisation and enhanced water recycling. Consequently, it is obvious that novel and sustainable materials and technologies for water treatment are needed.In this Master's programme, you will learn how waters are purified not only efficiently but also in a sustainable and economical manner.
