In the master's degree in environmental engineering, specialists are trained to develop sustainable and socially compatible solutions in the fields of energy, transport, water and waste. Our course is characterized by a high degree of specialization, in which engineering and natural science know-how combined with technical methodological competence is imparted. The course is research-oriented and internationally oriented, so that our graduates can act locally and globally and take on responsibility in this future-oriented area of ??civil engineering. After four semesters of standard study time, the course is completed with the academic degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.).

Study visits abroad are desirable and scheduled in the course of studies (but not compulsory). Through the use of various elearning elements such as learning games or augmented reality, we also guarantee a high quality of study based on the latest technology. With close, personal support on the "small campus" in Coudraystrasse, you can develop individually.  



The four-semester master’s degree in environmental engineering builds on the natural and engineering principles of the bachelor’s degree . The course is divided into compulsory basic modules of the basic subjects mathematics / statistics, applied computer science and urban infrastructure management, in elective modules from the entire range of the university, in compulsory modules in subject-specific basic subjects such as waste, urban water management, urban redevelopment, environmental geotechnics / contaminated sites / landfill construction, transport and in elective modules from the respective specialization supplementary subjects.

You can choose the elective modules yourself from the entire range of offers at the university, e.g. language modules for a stay abroad, as well as parts of the elective modules from the wide range of offers of the Faculty of Civil Engineering.

If you wish, you can complete part of the master’s degree abroad (optional). This gives you the opportunity to study at least two modules (or twelve credit points) at a foreign language university. In addition, we recommend that you acquire job-specific practical experience during your studies, even if no compulsory internships are integrated in the master’s program.

In the fourth semester, you will complete your studies with an expertly supervised, research-related master’s thesis. In this way, you document your ability to work scientifically and possibly focus your topic on professional goals.

Note: The ECTS system (European Credit Transfer System) is used throughout, which simplifies the recognition of academic achievements that have been achieved at other institutions. The credits certify the student's successful completion of the subject and the scope of performance in the subject.




In the master's degree in environmental engineering, engineers are trained who are responsible for planning, creating, adapting and managing the technical infrastructure of urban spaces ("material flow management and the corresponding process technology"). Interdisciplinary networked thinking as well as natural science and engineering skills are trained.

The job profile of environmental engineers is extremely diverse: They work, for example, in water, energy and waste management, in traffic system planning and in traffic management or in urban and regional planning. The aim is to make the technical infrastructure in these areas sustainable and socially acceptable.
