Degree

The CIRCLE Programme Board decides on the graduation of students from the programme, based on the information of the Examination Committees of the local universities' programmes. Students graduating from the CIRCLE programme will obtain a Master of Science degree in Circular Economy from the two European universities of the consortium where they have earned their credits. The three associated partners complement the CIRCLE programme: They are not able to award double degrees, but they contribute to the Diploma Supplement and the Transcript of Records for those CIRCLE students that spend a semester in one of these countries (i.e., Australia, China or Japan).

Degree options:

  • Double degree between the University of Graz and Chalmers University of Technology
  • Double degree between University of Graz, Leiden University/Delft University of Technology
  • Double degree between Chalmers University of Technology and Leiden University/Delft University of Technology
  • Double degree between Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Chalmers University of Technology
  • Double degree between Norwegian University of Science and Technology and University of Graz
  • Double degree between Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Leiden University/Delft University of Technology

In addition, graduates of the Master’s Programme will receive a commonly issued diploma supplement and a conferred certificate of completion.

Please note that in order to get awarded the double degree from the respective European partner universities, students must have successfully completed at least 60 ECTS credits at Chalmers University of Technology and/or at Delft University of Technology/Leiden University and at least 30 ECTS credits at the University of Graz and/or at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Students must always complete 60 ECTS credits at their host university 1.

Career Prospects

Occupational areas, for which the competences are developed, are highly connected to the chosen specialization and include the academic, private, public and half-public sector. Typical occupational areas of the graduates are (in alphabetical order): administration; environmental and management consultancy; industrial companies (e.g. product design, waste management); international organisations; management; teaching as well as vocational training and continuing education; quality assurance; service industry (e.g. tourism); scientific Research.

The International Master’s Programme prepares the students for following doctoral studies and careers in the fields of scientific research. The focus on societal topics of the programme also prepares the students for careers not directly related to scientific research. They can find jobs in the private and public sector (EU, national, regional and local government- and administration level) as well in consulting companies or NGOs. In the course of their future careers, graduates will be able to obtain leading positions, especially in the fields of integration of methodology in the areas of technology and assessment tools (especially related to complex processes in a societal- or technical- industrial field with sustainability components).
