Environmental engineering is devoted to questions of technical environmental protection and environmental planning. It is related to civil engineering and combines engineering with scientific, ecological, legal and other disciplines. It is their aim to contribute to the solution of environmental questions and to the sustainable use of finite resources.
Regardless of whether it is climate change, dwindling resources, an increase in world population, megacities and the associated problems: environmental issues are becoming increasingly important. Coping with the pressing tasks is inconceivable without technical solutions. It can therefore be assumed that knowledge of environmental technology will have a high priority in the future, which should also result in appropriate career opportunities for suitable graduates of the degree program.
Areas of responsibility for environmental engineers are, for example, water supply and disposal, waste disposal, energy supply, urban planning from an environmental point of view, remediation of contaminated sites in soils, air and noise protection.
Environmental engineers can work as project managers, experts or planners, for example. They are employed, for example, in engineering offices, in the public sector, in development aid, in transport companies or in water and sewage associations.
Environmental engineers often work together with civil engineers, geodesists, mechanical engineers, architects, spatial planners and landscape planners as well as natural, economic and social scientists and look for a solution together.
