Green-Campus-Concept

Live, learn and work at a unique place. The Environmental-Campus Birkenfeld, a campus of Trier University of Applied Sciences, is one-of-a-kind. It offers students an interdisciplinary education at the only "Zero Emission University" in Europe. Innovative and ecological building standards are complemented by modern utility technology and sustainable water management systems. The electricity and heat demand of the campus is covered by renewable energy sources, provided by a neighbouring biomass-combined heat and power plant.

Guided by an environment-oriented framework, we offer more than 2500 students a future-oriented education in our two departments 'Environmental Planning and Technology' and 'Environmental Business Management and Law'. Sustainability and environmental consciousness provide the link between the eleven Bachelor's, eleven Master's degree and three dual Bachelor's degree programmes and promote an intensive and interdisciplinary cooperation between the disciplines. Connecting ecologic, economic, technical and social matters enables our students to analyse and optimise complex systems later on in their careers. This is not taught only in theory. Students have the opportunity to implement the acquired knowledge and skills into practice in regional partner companies and numerous research institutes at the Environmental-Campus. 

Thanks to our large number of international partner universities and foreign language courses, students can easily enhance their international and linguistic competences.
