Environmental Engineering

The Environmental Engineering program is not restricted to isolated technical solutions but qualifies environmental engineers to recognize, analyze and solve complex problems in the area of conflict between man, environment, and technology. This qualification requires an interdisciplinary approach that is promoted by the cooperation of various faculties. Leading faculties are the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the Faculty of Mathematics and Geoinformation, and the Faculty of Technical Chemistry.

What does an environmental engineer do?

The graduates are qualified to take responsibility for environmental issues, the sustainable use of resources, and circularity in public and private sectors. Job opportunities arise in water quality, resource management, air pollution control, climate protection, environmental geoinformation, and environmental technology. Alumni will be prepared to take on responsibility in leading positions nationally and internationally.

They work in industries, engineering companies dealing with consulting, design, construction, and operations, in utilities for energy and water infrastructure, environmental inspection authorities, financial service providers, insurances and governmental agencies on the federal, provincial and municipal levels, environmental laboratories, and research institutes.

What are the requirements?

Environmental engineering can be studied by anyone interested in technical and natural scientific processes and solving complex tasks.

The prerequisite is a university entrance qualification (“Matura” or similar). Please notice that the language of instruction is German. Therefore, you must prove sufficient German knowledge at Level C1 of the Common European Framework Reference for Languages (GERS) for admission.
