In the second semester, students attend the sixth WASTE-Office
compulsory module and have to choose two out of Pfaffenwaldring 23
three specialised areas: Air Quality Control, Solid 70569 Stuttgart
Waste, and Waste Water. Each specialised area Germany
consists of one core module, two elective modules, and
consists of one core module, two elective modules, and
practical work or an industrial internship that can be
conducted instead of one elective module and practical
work. Depending on the individual study plan of each
student, additional elective modules, which include the
student research project and/or industrial internship,
have to be taken in the second and third semesters in
order to obtain the required credits. The individual
study plan enables students to organise their studies in
accordance with their own interests and needs and
allows them to either broaden their studies or to
The modules are supplemented by scientific and
practical work within the research activities of the
university institutes. An adviser ensures that each
individual programme is efficient and goal-oriented.
The fourth semester is dedicated to the Master's thesis
that can be done at the University of Stuttgart or
outside the university at a company, at another
university or at a research facility.
Classes are taught in English. International students
without prior German language proficiency have to
participate in the German language courses
accompanying the programme during the first and
second semesters. If students are exempt from the
German language courses in the first and second
semesters, other module(s) with equivalent credits
have to be taken instead. These modules have to be
non-technical and can be selected out of a broad
catalogue of key qualifications. Students who are
proficient in German may also choose additional
electives taught in German.
Upon successful completion of the programme,
students will be awarded the degree Master of Science
Additionally, it is possible for the students to conduct
the second year of studies within the frame of a double
degree programme with the Universidade Federal do
Paraná in Brazil.

Course objectives
Societies throughout the world have to face the fact
that seemingly plentiful and cheap resources are
slowly coming to an end, thus making the air and water
pollution control as well as the removal of waste in any
shape or form essential. As a consequence thereof,
shape or form essential. As a consequence thereof,
and in addition to dealing with the political and legal
implications, the specific education and training of
engineers has become an essential prerequisite in
mastering these environmental challenges.
The study programme WASTE directly addresses this
development by educating students from all over the
world in how to respond to these increasing
environmental challenges. Studying WASTE means
finding solutions and solving complex tasks in the fields
of air quality control, solid waste, and waste water
process engineering.

manufacturing, environmental technologies, machine
tools, electronics, information, and communication
technology. Many internationally-renowned companies
such as Bosch, Daimler, Porsche, and IBM Germany
have their headquarters and factories in the greater
Stuttgart area. In addition, numerous smaller
companies producing machine tools, textiles, precision
instruments, and luxury items are located here.
