Department of Environmental Engineering

Where it's all about the environment and knowing what's going on in it: our Environmental Engineering department.

Department of Environmental Engineering in Triesdorf

Thinking and acting in ecological cycles - we are passionate about our environment in teaching, research and further education. The goal: to shape climate change, the preservation of biodiversity, the ecology of our economic systems and thus a sustainable future.

Studying at the Environmental Engineering department

Our practice-oriented degree programmes are characterised in many aspects by the cooperative exchange with our partners, for example from industry, trade, administration or engineering offices. This exchange takes place in the practical semester, in many project ideas, in seminars and final theses, so that knowledge is transferred between students, partners and the department on an equal foot ing.

Some of our degree programmes have been established on the market for decades. However, they are also constantly adapted to innovative, didactic and socio-political trends. We offer all of our degree programmes as dual courses with intensive practical work, so that our students can gain their first professional experience during their studies. This head start in development can be generated in German-speaking countries through further project tasks or worldwide in semesters abroad.

With our sustainable focus on the environment, energy and water, which we offer in the Bachelor's degree programmes Environmental Engineering, Climate-Neutral Energy Systems and Engineering Water Management, students can also choose from the Master's degree programmes Environmental Engineering and the cooperative Master's degree programme Energy Management and Technology for further academic qualification. Our graduates are valued as managers in all areas of industry, by associations and specialised authorities and are very quickly entrusted with more advanced tasks.
