Overview

Environmental engineering is related to civil engineering and combines engineering with scientific, ecological, legal and other disciplines. With a variety of module combinations and options along the various subject areas, the course can be tailored to the student's personal interests. A mentoring system serves as a supervisory support when creating the individual study plans.

During the studies, stays abroad for study semesters or to work on the master’s thesis are welcomed by the department.

 

CAREER PROSPECTS

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 cooperation, in transport companies or in water and wastewater associations.

Environmental engineers often work with civil engineers, geodesists, mechanical engineers, architects, spatial planners and landscape planners as well as natural, economic and social scientists and look for solutions together.

In addition to studying, it is important to gain your own practical experience in relevant institutions at an early stage, to demonstrate your general suitability for practice and to establish contacts. The prospect of a good position is increased by the willingness to move professionally, also abroad. A good command of the English language is particularly recommended if you have an international focus
