Sustainable development, digitalisation and business models are topics that interest Innovation Engineering´s twenty new degree students. They have just started their Master Theses Projects where they – together with industry and business – explore various issues to contribute to new knowledge and societal benefits. Some project theme examples are:

  • How will the EU’s new taxonomy affect sustainable investments? The taxonomy classifies which activities are sustainable, to give the financial sector joint guidelines for when investments qualify as “green”.  
  • What kind of technology will Generation Z want to use by the year 2030 to interact with companies during their “pre-purchase phase”? Generation Z refers to those born in the late 1990s and early 2000s. 
  • Is it possible to connect carbon dioxide emission calculations with financial transactions to follow-up in one’s personal banking app? Could such a calculation influence peoples’ consumption and lifestyle? 
  • How can companies in the startup phase evaluate their environmental impact based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals?
  • How can scholarships support higher education in developing countries?
  • How is the market and its businesses affected by additive manufacturing – and what significance does additive manufacturing have on the business models?

The Master Theses will be presented the 2nd and 3rd of June 2021 – more information can be found on Innovation Engineering´s website a couple of weeks prior to that date.

You are invited to contact Jessica Wadin, Head of Division of Innovation Engineering, if you would like to know more about the Master Theses. E-mail:
