Environmental and climate protection, sustainability, energy transition and resource conservation

The challenges, particularly regarding climate neutrality by 2050 or sooner, are enormous and many of the problems to be solved concern the field of engineering. Nevertheless, these problems include not only questions of environmental engineering, but also the transformation of entire value-added chains, from raw materials and energy supply to sustainable construction and production all the way to a circular economy. The Environmental Engineering master’s programme therefore offers a wide range of methodological knowledge and subject-specific expertise for future-oriented and environmentally conscious engineers.

The master's programme builds on the bachelor's programmes Environmental and Process Technology as well as Energy and Environmental Technology. It also offers exciting specialisation options for students from a different field of engineering. The programme was developed from the research- and method-oriented Simulation and Experimental Engineering master’s programme. It therefore now combines the exciting topics in power, environmental and process engineering with a wide range of cutting-edge methodology courses and aspects of digital transformation.

Please note: The language of instruction is mainly German.
