Description

Advertisement

The Master of Science Programme Air Quality Control, Solid Waste and Waste Water Process Engineering (WASTE) is designed to be completed within four semesters.
It will cover air quality control, solid waste and waste water control and treatment technologies based on the fundamentals of process engineering.
In the first semester all students take the mandatory core modules concentrating on the advanced fundamentals of environmental and process engineering. These modules prepare students for the specialised areas and modules of the second and third semesters. Another two mandatory core modules have to be taken in the second semester.
At the beginning of the second semester, students choose two out of three specialised areas: Air Quality Control, Solid Waste and Waste Water. Each specialised area consists of two core modules, one in the second and one in the third semester. Depending on the individual study plan of each student, additional elective modules have to be taken in the second and third semesters. The individual study plan enables students to organise their studies in accordance with their own interests and needs and allows them either to broaden their studies or to specialise.
The modules are supplemented by scientific and practical work within the research activities of the university institutes. An advisor ensures that each individual programme is efficient and goal oriented.
The fourth semester is dedicated to the Master's thesis which can be prepared in the Universität Stuttgart or outside the university at a company, in another university or in a research facility.
Classes are taught in English. International students without prior knowledge of the German language have to participate in German language courses accompanying the programme throughout the first and second semesters. If students are exempted from the German language courses in the first and second semesters, other module(s) with equivalent credits have to be taken instead. These modules have to be non-technical and can be selected out of a huge catalogue of key qualifications. Students who are proficient in German may also choose additional electives taught in German.
Upon successful completion of the programme, students will be awarded the degree Master of Science (MSc).
