ACTIVELY SHAPE THE ENVIRONMENT OF TOMORROW. STUDY ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING.
Climate change is noticeably altering our environment. Floods of the century, storms and the loss of biodiversity are presenting us and the global ecosystems with ever greater challenges. But the way we live is also increasingly affected, making it necessary to adapt our agriculture, forestry and many other sectors to the new conditions. However, this can only be achieved if we do not work against nature, but make an active contribution to more environmental, climate and nature protection and further promote the expansion of renewable energies. This requires environmental engineers with special know-how in the "green" fields, who perfectly understand the function of ecosystems and can combine traditional know-how with innovative ideas to create sustainable and future-oriented solutions.
