Sustainable Engineering

The Chair of Sustainable Engineering (SEE) develops scientific solutions for the sustainability assessment of products and technologies. While environmental protection and sustainable development are widely accepted as foundations of government policy and corporate strategies, the challenge for many organizations is to put sustainability into practice.

But how can sustainability and environmental compatibility really be measured comprehensively?

How can a holistic assessment for products or production processes be implemented?

The Chair of Sustainable Engineering addresses these questions by developing and applying methods with a systemic perspective on technology, the environment and sustainability.

Our mission

We teach and develop life-cycle-based solutions for measuring sustainability in decision-making processes.

Our vision

We want to be a leading research group in the field of sustainability assessment and make a substantial contribution to sustainable development.
