The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering is designed to deepen and broaden the engineering knowledge and skills in the areas of technical environmental protection issues and environmental planning acquired during the Bachelor’s degree. Environmental engineering is related to civil engineering and connects the engineering sciences with the natural, ecological and legal sciences, among others. The degree program encompasses the planning and construction of supply and disposal systems, as well as municipal infrastructure. Students will also be confronted with finding solutions to challenging environmental issues and contribute to solving problems of limited natural resources. There will be a particular scientific focus on issues surrounding the provision of drinking water, a sustainable approach to solid waste and sewage, as well as the protection of bodies of water, the ground and the air. In addition, the degree program in particular, as well as the subject area in general increases interdisciplinary and international levels of cooperation. Students will choose a major subject during the program, allowing them to specialize in one of the sub-fields of environmental engineering. The wide variety and combination possibilities of the various modules and elective courses allow students to address their personal interests in the area. A mentoring system supports each student during the process of selecting suitable courses and subjects.

It is also possible for students to spend a semester abroad studying or working towards completion of the Master’s thesis.
