Bachelor of Science
Environmental Engineering addresses the problems of technical environmental protection as well as environmental planning. It is related to Civil Engineering and combines engineering disciplines with scientific, ecological, legal, and other disciplines. The aspiration of environmental engineering is to contribute to solving environmental problems and to a sustainable utilisation of scarce resources.

Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities.

Be it climate change, dwindling resources, an increase in world population, mega cities, or the problems involved: environment-related issues are becoming more and more important. Without technical solutions, managing these urgent tasks is unthinkable. Therefore, we can assume that knowledge regarding environmental engineering will be of considerable significance, which should result in corresponding job opportunities for suitable graduates.
An environmental engineer’s areas of responsibility include, for example, water supply and disposal, waste disposal, energy supply, urban planning in terms of environmental engineering, rehabilitation of contaminated land, and air and noise protection.
Environmental engineers can work, for example, as project managers, consultants, or planners. They are employed by engineering firms, the public service, development aid, transport companies, or water and wastewater associations.
In this context, environmental engineers frequently cooperate with civil engineers, geodesists, mechanical engineers, architects, spatial planners and landscape designers, as well as scientists, economists, and social scientists.
