Course of studies
Duration of study (semesters)4
Description of course of studiesHuman activities in form of resource utilization, energy generation, construction of settlements and infrastructure and transportation are connected to the environment with a vast variety of complex mechanisms. Natural phenomena on the other hand can result to dangers for human activities and human life.
The Environmental Engineering studies address this complex field. Environmental engineers are able to understand, model and predict the outcome of these mechanisms of action. Based on this knowledge they develop and apply strategies and technologies for an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable interaction between the natural and the technical environment.

Application and admission
Application period for winter semester: 01.01. - 31.05.
Application period for summer semester: 01.09. – 15.01.
Our online application portal will create a checklist with documents you have to hand in. The checklist shows which documents you need for admission and which for enrollment.
You must submit the signed application form and all documents you need for admission before the application deadline, i.e. before 31.05. for winter semester and before 15.01. for summer semester.
You must submit all documents you need for enrollment before 15.09. for winter semester or before 15.03. for summer semester. If individual documents for enrollment are not available at that date, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received.
Please check your TUMonline account regularly to see if we have any questions concerning your documents or if you have to amend one or more documents.
