Societies throughout the world face the fact that seemingly plentiful and inexpensive resources are becoming more and more limited. The resulting environmental challenges accelerate the transformation from a linear use and “throwaway society” to a circular economy. Multidisciplinary engineers and scientists are needed to master this environmental pressure by monitoring the air and water pollution, and managing the resource waste, while also assuring environmental integrity, resilience and sustainability.
The Master of Science Program WASTE caters to international students with a background in Chemical, Civil, Environmental, Mechanical or Process Engineering whose goal it is to work for internationally operating companies, universities or research institutes both in Germany as well as in their home countries around the world. In addition, WASTE provides German students with an international study environment and encourages them to do their Master Thesis abroad.
With an ideal scientific infrastructure and a curriculum providing students with the utmost flexibility to develop his or her own individual profile in the environmental sector, the WASTE program trains students as international engineers with a profound knowledge of state-of-the-art environmental and process technologies. The theoretical background is supplemented with practical experience, excursions to companies and industrial and/or municipal facilities (e.g. waste incineration plants, landfills and sewage treatment plants) providing students with insights into the day-to-day work of an environmental engineer.
Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded the Master of Science degree.
The WASTE program is looking forward to welcoming you in Stuttgart!
