Living, learning and working in a special place. The Environmental Campus Birkenfeld, a campus of the Trier University of Applied Sciences, is one of the special university campuses in Germany and offers students an interdisciplinary course of study at a unique "Zero Emission University", which, in addition to an ecological construction concept, also has a CO2-neutral energy and heat supply and state-of-the-art building and plant technology. Founded in 1996, the campus is one of the most successful conversion projects in Rhineland-Palatinate. A former reserve military hospital of the American armed forces was transformed into a university campus with exemplary environmental technology.
With the focus on "environment", students are offered a future-oriented education in the two fields of environmental planning/technology and environmental economy/law. The concept of environment and sustainability forms the thematic link within the study programmes and promotes intensive and interdisciplinary cooperation between individual disciplines. The networking of ecological, economic, technical and social concerns enables students to analyse and optimise complex systems in their later work. In the practice-oriented education, students have the opportunity to test their theoretical knowledge in regional companies as well as in one of the numerous research institutions at the Environmental Campus. The aim of the training at the Umwelt-Campus is to be close to practical experience and at the same time to combine the studies with innovative and research-related topics. The campus is internationally networked, with the strength of strong, regional roots. The students come from all over the world to Hoppstädten-Weiersbach - due to the groundbreaking and future-oriented education.
All people on campus are united by a special "we-feeling" that inspires teaching, learning and working. Over 750 dormitory places directly on the campus make the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld an academic village in which everybody knows each other. The campus thus offers a unique workplace for different areas such as research, teaching, administration and technology.
