Education for future jobs relevant to tackle questions about environment and development! New possibilities open up with skills from the International Masters Programme in Ecotechnology and Sustainable Development. The programme provides you with a deeper knowledge about natural resource management from a systemic perspective. Focus is on moving society towards a sustainable development.
In order to be successful when working with sustainable development, you must possess adequate knowledge and skills. The International Masters Programme in Ecotechnology and Sustainable Development will provide you with knowledge related to environmental and natural resource questions from a sustainability point of view and from global, regional and local levels. These broad issues, which vary in relation to time, place, complexity and connectedness, are approached in an interdisciplinary and systemic way. The programme includes courses in both Environmental Science and Environmental Technology. Environmental Science focuses on knowledge about how natural resources and the environment form preconditions to create sustainable societal functions. Environmental Technology, on the other hand, focuses on the technology and technical systems from a sustainability perspective.
This programme aims to develop your analytical and systemic thinking and thus to provide you with the ability to tackle complex problems. It will also provide you with an understanding of efficient natural resource usage. It also considers how knowledge referring to different systems and innovations, together with knowledge about societal control systems, can contribute towards sustainable development. You will learn how to handle advanced methodologies to identify and describe problems in order to arrive at reasonable solutions.
Your multi-disciplinary ability will furthermore develop due to the design of the programme, which includes, for example, multidisciplinary thematic assignments. Within these projects you will be able to sharpen your ability to search for, analyse and use knowledge under qualified supervision. The programme aims to provide you with an insight into modern research and development within the field.
The International Master's Programme in Ecotechnology and Sustainable Development takes either one year or two years to complete.
The first year of the two-year version of the programme is devoted to mandatory courses in environmental science and engineering. The second year includes student's choice of courses in the autumn semester, and a master's thesis (20 weeks) on a relevant topic in the spring semester.

For high performing students applying to a study programme at Mid Sweden University starting spring semester 2014, we will offer a number of scholarship which will result in a fee waiver of the tuition fee with 70 000 SEK or 125 000 SEK, depending on the program one chooses to study.
The Swedish Institute, a government agency, administers scholarships for students and researchers coming to Sweden to pursue their objectives at a Swedish university. Other organizations, both Swedish and foreign, also sponsor scholarships for foreign students in Sweden. The number of available scholarships varies from year to year, and competition is keen.
