Thank you for your interest in studying at TU Berlin. The following webpages will give you some information about the Institute of Environmental Technologies and the related undergraduate studies and master's program of Environmental Sciences and Technologies (TUS). The information is aimed especially at prospective students.
The degree program Environmental Sciences and Technologies deals with the basics and processes of formation, distribution, impact and transformation of pollutants and energies within and between the environmental media soil, water and air. The aspects of detection, assessment, avoidance, reduction or total elimination of environmental pollution, environmental risks and environmental damage receive special attention. With regard to comprehensive training, both front-of-pipe and end-of-pipe approaches of environmental protection are taken into account.
If you have specific questions about your studies, examination guidance or individual courses in the field of Environmental Science and Technology, the professorial study counseling can help you.
For questions regarding the recognition of completed courses and study achievements that you have completed at other universities, the Examination Board Chairperson of the master’s program is the right to contact. This is also the contact point for the approval of deadline extensions. For the bachelor's and master's degree, there are different chairpersons of the Examination Board.
Further information on the respective requirements recognition of completed courses and study achievements can be found on the websites of the chairs of the chairpersons.
The Student Studies Counseling for Environmental Science and Technology is one of the contact points for all prospective students and students that have general and specific questions about the study programs.
The Student Studies Counsellor studies Environmental Science and Technology him/herself and can pass on important information about the curriculum, the daily routine of the studies, the organization of studies and the preparation of examinations.
In addition, regular internal Newsletters are informing you about student job offers, open internship positions, useful information and events such as introduction weeks and graduation ceremonies. If you have any questions about studying, check the website or come to the office hours!
Practical experiences during the studies are part of the education of the students in Environmental Science and Technology. The pre-vocational training should serve to strengthen the motivation for a practical scientific education. In addition, the non-university activity offers the opportunity to get to know typical work processes and the structures at a workplace.
It is scheduled that all students in the undergraduate program complete a basic and field specific internship (12 weeks in total) outside of university and a research internship (6 weeks) in the master’s degree outside of university.
The internship coordinators are responsible for the recognition of the internships. Further information on recognition and requirements can be found in the respective internship regulation for bachelor’s and master’s degree.
The BAföG Office usually requires proof of sufficient study achievements after the fourth semester. This is to be determined by the BAföG officer. Students of Environmental Science and Technology contact the responsible BAföG representative and have to acquire necessary proofs of performance as well as the pre-filled BAföG form for the performance confirmation at the agreed appointment. To contact the BAföG Officer and appointment organization, send an e-mail to the address on the right. Dr. Anke Putschew
