The economical usage of energy resources, safe production and handling of materials, and the protection of the environment are gaining importance worldwide. Safety and environmental protection are indispensable elements of any industrial activity. In a modern society technical processes will only be accepted if the emerging hazards are identified and kept under control and if the environmental impact is reduced to an acceptable minimum. To achieve these aims, experts are needed which possess both an in-depth understanding of process engineering as well as specific knowledge of safety and environmental technologies. The master program Process Safety and Environmental Engineering aims to educate experts for industry as well as for authorities, research organizations, and higher education. Graduates from the program are versed in the natural scientific fundamentals of technical processes, especially those related to safety and environment and think and act holistically in the assessment of safety and environmental concerns and their prevention and mitigation. They are capable to apply their engineering know-how to safety and environmental problems and appropriate solutions.
