Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)

Environmental engineering

Environmental engineering combines technical and social aspects – the field primarily asks how we can make our lives and business practices more environmentally-friendly in both a regional and national context.

If you are interested in how ...

  • we can use sustainable energy from the sun, the earth, etc.,
  • use sunlight to cool our buildings,
  • restore streams and rivers to good health,
  • turn water into valuable drinking water,
  • turn waste water into fertilizer,
  • extract valuable resources from waste,
  • ensure the world remains a livable place in the future,

... then the degree program in environmental engineering is a great choice for you. Career prospects in this field are extremely good due to a projected lack of trained experts in the area in coming years – you can complete your qualified training program in the field in Höxter.
