TU Wien attempts to support prospective students in their decision making phase for their studies, while ensuring the high and internationally recognized quality of their studies and teaching.

As of the winter semester 2019/20, there will be either admission or selection procedures (for bachelor's programmes with limited places) for all bachelor's programmes at TU Wien or a study preparation and reflection phase (PRe phase) for bachelor's programmes without place restrictions.

Details on the PRe phase can be found here, opens an external URL in a new window.

General Information

Environmental engineering is an occupational field of great social significance both now and in the future. 

The bachelor's programme Environmental Engineering is not limited to isolated technical approaches, it trains engineers to identify, analyse and solve complex problems in a human, environmental and technological context.


This programme addresses all those who are interested in a technical/scientific, interdisciplinary education and who see social responsibility as key to ensuring that humans can co-exist harmoniously with the environment in the future.

Structure of the Programme

Alongside the mathematical/scientific subjects such as Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology/Ecology and engineering subjects like Mechanics, Geology, Process Engineering, Geoinformation as well as Programming and Model Building students, basic education in interdisciplinary areas such as environmental law and ecology will also be provided. 

The technical area of Environmental Engineering at the TU Wien includes:

  • conceptual and planning tasks in water quality and resource management,
  • analyzing and assessing problems regarding air quality, climate and noise control as well as 
  • environmental data management focussing on providing, combining and using space-related data in Environmental Engineering.

Examination Subjects and Modules of the Bachelor's Programme

Master Programmes

As of the winter semester 2021/22 we will offer a Master's programme in Environmental Engineering. This programme will offer students the possibiliy to consolidate their knowledge and skills, and choose from a number of specialisations. The Master's programme will last for 4 semesters (120 ECTS) and graduates will be awarded the degree of "Diplom-Ingenieur" (Dipl. Ing. or DI), broadly equivalent to Master of Engineering.

Job Profiles and Prospects

The interdisciplinary education in Environmental Engineering qualifies graduates to develop environmental agendas and assume responsibility for sustainable use of resources in both public and private sectors.

Job opportunities arise in the areas of water quality, resource management, air monitoring, climate protection, environmental geoinformation and environment engineering. Graduates will be prepared to take on responsiblity in leading positions both nationally and internationally.

Graduates may find positions in the industry and business sector, consulting firms and planning companies, but can also work as project developers or at supply and disposal companies, operators of energy and water infrastructure sites, environmental testing centres, financial service providers and insurance companies, many departments as well as research establishments.
