Course of Study

This degree programme consitsts of six semesters and starts in the winter semester. The programme includes a twelve-week basic professional internship. Regulations for the pre-study internship for students of the department of Environmental Planning and Technology are available at the Registrar's Office. Please consult the course representative regarding the nature of the internship in advance, as it is the course representative who will recognise or reject an internship as fulfillment of the admission requirement. Subject-related vocational training courses may accepted.

The Bachelor's programme is based on a modular concept. Interdisciplinary modules (e.g. Languages, Economics, Law and Mathematics) are offered in addition to eighteen modules on process engineering. Students will enrol in eleven of these depending on their degree focus. One of these modules can be composed of individual lectures from elective modules. This allows students to apply their own individual interests and knowledge.  

The modular structure enables students to change their degree course even after they have begun their studies. Some of the modules in the first three semesters are part of the curriculum of other Bachelor's degree programmes in the faculty. This also facilitates a degree change later on.

Exchange semesters are encouraged. Students who decide to study at a university abroad, generally do so during the fifth semester. The prerequisite for this is an equivalent curriculum at the partner university.

The sixth semester is reserved for a period of practical and the Bachelor thesis. The period of practical takes twelve weeks. The aim of the final dissertation is to demonstrate that the student is capable of independently working through a subject-related topic by applying scientific methods within a nine-week period.
