Master of Science in Environmental Engineering

The international Master's Program in Environmental Engineering builds upon basic knowledge and competences from undergraduate studies in Environmental Engineering or closely related programmes. It provides students with advanced knowledge and methodologies within a combination of two specific „Fields of Study“. Teaching in each Field of Study combines different relevant disciplines from the Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering and gives students a wide range of perspectives on their field of specialisation.

The fields of study in the master's programme are:

  1. Urban Water Engineering
  2. Water Resources Management
  3. Hydraulic Engineering
  4. Hydrogeology, Groundwater, Geothermal Energy
  5. Modelling and Measurement of Flow and Transport
  6. Resource Efficiency in Urban Planning
  7. Environmental Geotechnics
  8. Environmental Hazards and Risk
  9. Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning
  10. Transportation Engineering and Control
  11. Water-Food-Energy Nexus

Duration: 4 Semesters

Language: English

Main Location: Munich Downtown Campus

Tuition Fees: € 117,- per semester for services and public transport

This study structure is valid from the winter term 2016/17 (FPSO201611). For the structure until the summer term 2016 (FPSO20111) klick here.

The curriculum consists of:

  • 2,5 semester (78 credits) aus course and lab work
  • 0,5 semester (12 credits) practical study project
  • 1 semester (30 credits) master’s thesis

The Fields of Study are the core of the programme and provide the students with their professional qualification. A common block of Cross Cutting Methods provides competences in acquiring, modelling and visualisation of environmental data. Additionally, students have the opportunity to choose part of their modules from the complete curriculum of TUM incl. language courses and soft skills.
