Leiden-Delft joined MSc programme Industrial Ecology accredited
The Leiden- Delft joined MSc programme on Industrial Ecology has been accredited by the NVAO as an independent MSc programme within Leiden University and Delft University of Technology. Industrial Ecology is an emergent scientific discipline that promotes a systemic approach to sustainability problems, integrating technical, environmental and social aspects.
The programme was already up and running as a track within the MSc Chemistry since 2004. Although students often mention that this is "not a study for the fainthearted" it attracts about 20 highly motivated students from all over the globe every year. The accreditation will facilitate more effective PR for the programme by which the initiators expect to further increase the number of students.
