  • The purpose with the Bachelor’s Programme in Ecotechnology is that the student shall develop relevant knowledge about sustainable development of society. Of central importance is that the education should provide knowledge about the use of natural resources in a systems perspective and give good insight into global, regional and local environmental problems and their solutions.

  • 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.
