About this program

Bachelor Environmental Engineering

Sustainable Resource Management

Water, soil and air are becoming increasingly valuable re-sources as population increases. The goal of environmental engineers is to manage these vital resources in a sustainable manner and to restore them wherever necessary.

The Bachelor’s degree program provides a solid foundation in the fundamentals of mathematics and the natural and engineering sciences. A project in the second semester gives a first insight into practical problem solving. Laboratory work also familiarizes students with the necessary analytical and experimental methods. Additional knowledge is acquired in an elective module (see below). The pro-gramme concludes with an independent Bachelor’s thesis.
