Circular Economy, Master of Science in Technology

Study objectives

A circular economy is a regenerative system which aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value while minimising waste, emissions and energy use by slowing down, closing and narrowing material and energy loops. Its purpose is to decouple economic growth from the consumption of finite resources.

In this Master's programme, you will learn how to improve resource efficiency to promote the circular economy, including issues such as design to recover materials, design for disassembly, design for cleaner material flows and design for remanufacturing. This all can decrease waste and reduce energy use.

The Master's programme prepares you to work as a professional in the circular economy in a wide range of jobs focusing primarily on sustainable business and production.

You will learn how a circular economy can provide added value to companies, how material cycles can be created to be more effective, how a sharing economy can be applied and how individuals and communities can give added value to solutions.

After completing this Master's programme, you will be able to:

  • identify the most important environmental impacts of products and processes and their significance for business,
  • analyse how competitive in terms of environmental impacts and costs a given technology, product or service is in different operating environments,
  • recognise the environmental impacts of industrial, service, community and primary sector processes and systems and evaluate the technical possibilities to minimise them,
  • explain the complex interdependencies of local and global environmental problems,
  • apply theories and the most recent scientific knowledge to solve problems with environmental aspects,
  • act as an environmental expert in different decision-making situations of a business and to produce and convey information to support different stakeholders in environmental-related decision-making,
  • assimilate and innovate new technological solutions to develop the environmental sector.

Study contents

The Master's programme in Circular Economy is offered by LUT University on the Lahti Campus.

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 can offer us access to products and assets which can be utilised to create these solutions.

Another essential circular economy aspect is the inclusion of social capital. You will learn to create sharing economy solutions which are based on the abilities of individuals and communities.

In addition, you will learn how a bio-based materials economy may help us produce systems without waste. In a circular economy, the role of business is central, and therefore, you will also learn how business can create new business models based on the circular economy approach.
