A particular strength in Environmental Protection Technology is the breadth of its process engineering activities, as reflected in the courses.

Main fields in education are:

  • Raw material processing
  • Recycling
  • Soil remediation
  • Wastewater technology
  • Hydrometallurgy (starting 2017)


These subjects are part of the (German) degree courses: 

Energy and raw materials (Bachelor)

Geo-environmental engineering (Bachelor)

Process engineering/chemical engineering (Bachelor)

Environmental process engineering and recycling (Master)

See the complete list of the Bachelor and Master courses of the Clausthal University of Technology here (only German).
