What is it?

Environmental engineers shape the environment of tomorrow. In addition to their sound technical expertise and knowledge of business administration and environmental law, they also have excellent social skills, which enable them to play a key role at the interface between technology and the environment.

After learning the basics, our bachelor's degree program in environmental engineering offers students the opportunity to specialize in environmental process engineering, ecotoxicology or environmental informatics.  At our university, you will study in small groups, which means you will have excellent contact to lecturers – and be close to exciting research.

What can I do with it?

The environmental engineering degree program covers a broad range of subjects, so that graduates will be able to work across the entire spectrum of the professional fields of environmental engineering, e.g. in the following areas:

  • Waste treatment
