Information about the focus

Studying the focus on Green Engineering - What does that mean?

Sustainability Management deals with the development and application of technologies, methods, and processes for the prevention, reduction, or remediation of environmental impacts.


The goal of environmental engineering is to create a balance between the needs of humanity and the conservation of natural resources and ecosystems to secure the quality of life for current and future generations.


In the fourth semester, students focus on the fundamentals of sustainability management, an essential area that lays the foundation for environmentally conscious and future-oriented action in companies.


In the fifth semester, the focus is on environmental protection technology, which teaches important technologies and methods to prevent or reduce environmental impacts.


The sixth semester is dedicated to renewable energy technology, to introduce students to innovative solutions for using renewable energy sources.

Finally, in the seventh semester, students deepen their knowledge in environmental process engineering, which deals with physical, chemical, and biological processes to treat gases, liquids, and solids in an environmentally friendly manner.


Overview of the focus modules:


4th Sem.: Fundamentals of Sustainability Management


5th Sem.: Environmental Protection Technology


6th Sem.: Renewable Energy Technology


7th Sem.: Environmental Process Engineering
