Particular Feature

The course of studies is offered in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Konstanz (HTWG) and enables a broad-based study at a high level. The students benefit from the differentiated orientation of the two participating universities. While the focus of the Ravensburg-Weingarten University of Applied Sciences is more on energy technology, environmental analysis and radioecology, the HTWG Konstanz specialises in apparatus, plants, mechanical and thermal process engineering.
Particular emphasis is placed on adapting the range of courses to practical needs. Students can apply and consolidate their acquired knowledge in laboratory work placements, in project work and during the master's thesis.
The profile of the course of studies is strongly application-oriented and with its broad orientation (process engineering, apparatus and plant construction, analytics, energy system technology) it is of great interest to industry.

Studies & study content

The curriculum of the 3-semester Master's programme is modular. In the first two semesters 9 compulsory modules have to be completed, plus two of four optional modules. In the 3rd semester, the Master's thesis is written, for which 30 ECTS points are awarded.
In almost all modules the students acquire professional competence and thus deepen their environmental and process engineering knowledge.
In connection with the broad-based professional training, the students acquire important methodological and key competences for their later professional life, especially in the practical study phases (internships, project work, master's thesis).

Career & Perspectives

According to the unanimous forecasts of the major associations VDI/GVC, DECHEMA and VDMA, the demand for engineers in the field of environmental and process engineering will increase. Graduates of the Master's programme in Environmental and Process Engineering will have access to the entire industrial sector of the chemical industry, pharmaceuticals, food industry, plant and equipment construction, energy technology, biotechnology and medical technology. Public and private environmental and analytical laboratories, as well as public services and engineering offices also offer jobs.
