Since January 2005 run a two year professional education program in waste engineering called Kretsloppsteknik. This program is designed to provide waste companies with technicians who can independently run some of the more complex operations of modern waste management such as waste treatment processes and landfill gas and leachate systems. The professional role is similar to that of a process engineer, but with special competence in the waste management applications. The programme includes practice periods at waste companies in different parts of Sweden. All students must master Swedish.

Starting in 2007 is a new BSc and MSc program in Natural Resources Engineering (civ ing Naturresursteknik). One of the finishing profiles of this program is Environmental Engineering with a substantial curricula in waste science and technology.

Education given external to Luleå University of Technology The division teaches in courses by other universities and professional organisations. Among the topics we teach about are:

- Waste characterization

- Anaerobic waste treatment

- Landfill emission control
