Master programme Environmental and Climate Protection Technology

Content and focus of the degree programme:

This study programme is only available in German.

Building on the bachelor's programme, the master's programme lasts three semesters. During the first two semesters the students will study compulsory subjects, majors and elective subjects. The third semester is reserved for the master's thesis. The master's programme concludes with a Master of Science degree (Diplomingenieur). Two majors are available: Process Engineering and Waste Management and Technology. Process Engineering major: Managing the interplay between different processes is one of the tasks of process engineering as well as considering the effects that these processes have on humans and the environment. The basis for process engineering as an engineering discipline is the understanding that the large number of processes can be traced back to a comparatively small number of basic operations. Waste Management and Technology major: Developments over the past few years have shown that more and more graduates are finding employment not only in the actual sectors of environmental and disposal technology but also in the supply sector, e.g. water, energy and raw material supply and the fields of environment, quality and energy management. This trend can be attributed to the fact that industrial environmental protection was initially primarily concerned with disposing of emissions and waste in the most environmentally-friendly manner possible by using appropriate treatment processes. Today the focus is on recycling and using waste material as raw material in highly industrialised waste processing plants. Production-integrated industrial environmental protection attempts to avoid emissions and aims to collect waste intelligently in order to process, provide and use it as an energy source or raw material.
