Environmental Civil Engineering


Environmental Civil Engineering

As an engineer in Environmental Civil Engineering you shape the interactions between human society and the natural environment. Infrastructure systems provide people with electricity, heat, water, or mobility and dispose of wastewater and waste. These systems are the structural support of our society and are based on the use of natural resources. At the same time, they consume or pollute them. Our resources are becoming scarcer and a growing world population is putting additional strain on resources. So how to align the sustainable management of natural resources with the provisioning of human society in the long term?

Determined by this setting, the guiding principle of the study program is to further develop or newly construct infrastructure systems in the sense of an energy-efficient, climate-neutral, environmentally friendly and resource-saving circular economy.

By studying the seven semesters’ Environmental Civil Engineering program at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences you will gain the necessary knowledge and skills from the natural and engineering sciences to meet this responsible task in your working life. Your education will combine engineering methods and technologies from planning, construction and operation of infrastructures with system analytical approaches from ecology and competences in the management of projects as well as in planning and approval processes.
