Industrial Ecology in
Higher Education


Industrial ecology is becoming an increasingly common reference at universities throughout the world. It is featured in courses, seminars, conferences, and research centers. ISIE members have expressed interest in having a source for finding IE-relevant programs. The original version of this listing was posted in late 2002 as a first step in helping people see what is currently available in higher education. This update, completed in February 2009, reflects continued interest in IE as several new degree programs have recently been adopted. The information provided here was gathered from faculty and researchers at universities as well as via Internet searches.


This is by no means an exhaustive report on all programs that might have IE-relevant degrees and/or research. There are likely many universities offering programs that fit within the IE paradigm that were not uncovered in this effort.
