The task of biotechnology and environmental technology is to minimize environmental pollution wherever possible at the place of its formation and to develop plants in which waste, wastewater, waste gases and soil can be treated in such a way that the risk to humans and the environment is eliminated as far as possible. A key position here are biological processes. These also serve to develop renewable energy sources such as biogas, hydrogen, bioethanol and biodiesel. The increased use of renewable resources as a substitute for the dwindling fossil resources will play an increasingly important role in the future.
The study course Biotechnology and Environmental Engineering (BEE) is geared to the specific needs of medium-sized companies, public institutions, laboratories as well as industry. He offers a sound and application-oriented education for entry into professional practice in the field of biotechnology and environmental technology. The acquisition of a wide range of specialist knowledge qualifies you to start your career at national and international level.
