Do you want to save our planet? As the world's population continues to grow, we must drastically rethink the way we produce and consume. Our throw-away society must be radically changed so that we do not deplete the earth and burden the environment. Simple solutions, such as recycling, are not enough: we must prevent pollution from occurring in the first place.

What if all products could be repaired, reused, remanufactured, or eventually recycled? What if production processes only used renewable energy and non-toxic substances? Products and production processes are designed by engineers. Therefore, the transition to a sustainable future starts with training a new type of engineer: the circular engineer. A professional with in-depth knowledge and the technical know-how to apply principles of circularity in product and process design. In a circular economy, products and materials are kept in use for as long as possible, thus greatly reducing waste and harmful emissions to soil, air and water

Circularity and sustainability are interwoven throughout the entire curriculum of the bachelor’s in Circular Engineering, and you research real-world cases in small working groups of fellow students. In this way, the programme offers a motivating and unique approach to engineering education, with much practical training and fewer lectures. Will you help to build a greener future?
