Что я буду изучать?

Industrial Ecology is an interdisciplinary research field specialising in environmental sustainability. It is the study of the flow of materials and energy in industrial and consumer activities and the effects these flows have on the environment. It also considers the influences of economic, political, regulatory and social factors on the flow, use and transformation of resources.
