In the Bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering, engineers are trained who actively deal with the future topics of ecological action, resource protection, mobility and climate change and make them sustainable and socially acceptable. The university course is completed after six semesters of standard study time with the academic degree "Bachelor of Science" (B.Sc.). It is aimed at those interested in science and technology who think and act globally and want to understand the complex interplay between technology and the environment. With guest lectures, excursions and integrated project work, we guarantee an optimal combination of theory and practice.
In addition to a good general education, prospective students should be particularly interested in solving technical problems on a scientific basis. Good knowledge of math and science subjects and the ability to think in networks facilitate the course.
The proof of an internship for a total of 12 weeks must be submitted to apply for admission to the Bachelor work (usually in the 6th FS) at the latest. It is recommended, but not absolutely necessary, to have completed this internship at least 4 weeks before the start of the course; the remaining weeks can be completed during the course. Any missing proof of the internship will be included in the admission to the course as a condition. For details, please refer to the »Internship Regulations
Eligible for admission to the course
The prerequisite for admission to the course is proof of language skills in German at competence level C 1 of the Common European Framework of Reference (GER)
In the first semesters, you will learn the basics of engineering in the areas of mathematics, construction chemistry, building physics and technical mechanics, as well as subject-specific basics of environmental engineering such as environmental chemistry, microbiology, thermodynamics, mobility, climate and meteorology.
From the fourth semester you will deepen your knowledge in the field of waste management and biological process engineering, energy management, urban water management, transport and urban material flow use in planning, construction and operation. The curriculum is supplemented by additional elective modules from the entire range of the university, such as language courses or design seminars from the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Studies. You will acquire your first academic professional qualification and can apply for the master’s course of the same name in »Environmental Engineering« and further develop your specialist knowledge.
Alternatively, from the 5th semester onwards, you can switch to the field of study »Building materials and renovation«. In addition to the choice of suitable building materials for all kinds of new buildings, the focus is on dealing with existing structures, structural damage and repairs and renovations. In addition, you will deal with raw material resources and the possibilities of building material recycling. You acquire your first academic professional qualification and can further expand your specialist knowledge in the master's degree in "Building Materials Engineering" .
In the bachelor's degree in environmental engineering, students are prepared for the planning, construction, adaptation and management of the technical infrastructure in cities as well as the research and development of intelligent solutions to conserve resources in the local environment. Interdisciplinary and networked thinking is essential.
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.
