The master degree program Environmental Engineering Sciences is a modularised face-to-face program. The Standard lenght of studies is four semesters: three semesters of studying and one for the elaboration of the Master thesis.

The study can be started at the summer and winter term. A study entry for the winter term is recommended.


Teaching and learning

Teaching and learning forms

The study-specific examination and study regulations of the Master's degree programme in Environmental Engineering Sciences determine which modules have to be completed in which semester (see study programme schedule). In addition, students receive a timetable for each semester in which the courses of all modules of the respective semester are scheduled.

The contents of the course are taught in different courses. The types of courses are characterised by the use of different forms of teaching and learning.

The following types of courses are used in the Master's programme in Environmental Engineering Sciences:



Normally, modules are completed with an examination at the end of the semester. Those tests are most commonly oral or written exams, but also assignments and presentations are possible. At the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences the examination period of one semester is separated in two examination phases. The first examination phase takes place in the first two weeks after the end of lectures. The second examination phase takes place during the two weeks before the start of the new term.

According to the study and examination regulations of the program, it is possible that certain exercises and tasks need to be fulfilled as entrance requirements for the examinations.

Entrance requirements can be: assignments, reviews on a certain field of study, presentations, reports, tests, exercises or participation in scientific discussions.
