Overview

The Ecotechnology programme at Mid Sweden University integrates environmental issues with entrepreneurship and other skills to provide relevant knowledge for working in one of the world’s fastest growing sectors – Ecotechnology and green business.

Previous students emphasise the benefits of the special teaching methods of the programme. They explain how it has provided opportunities for individual development and given room for creativity.

The teaching is problem oriented and it often contains thematic studies. Theory and practice are mixed in the courses. The programme starts with field studies in a beautiful mountainous area not far from campus. During the first year you will work with thematic studies in Environmental Science and Technology. To make an individual specialisation of the programme the second year contains one semester of optional courses. You finish your Bachelor’s studies in Environmental Science by writing an individual thesis, which is often carried out in cooperation with a company, an organisation or an official authority, such as the municipality or the county administration.

After the programme

During the programme you will carry out projects in cooperation with municipalities and companies, which make you well prepared for a future career focused on environmentally sound development within both the private and the public sectors.
