“Studying in Straubing and sustainably managing the world as an engineer, chemist or economist”
With the bachelor and master programs at the TUM Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability, students can prepare for a career as an engineer, chemist or business economist in order to manage the world sustainably in the future. The exploitation of fossil resources, environmental degradation and the associated climate change will change our lives. This forces us to fundamentally rethink our way of life and business. The search for environmentally and climate friendly raw material and energy sources plays an essential role. At the TUM Campus Straubing for biotechnology and sustainability, researchers and students are focusing on “renewable raw materials” (NawaRo) instead of oil, coal and natural gas. The focus of the scientific work is the research and study of cultivation, the chemical-material use and energy recovery as well as economic aspects related to the production, marketing and use of “renewable resources”. Due to the close connection between fundamental and application-oriented research and teaching as well as a particularly high caring relation, the program prepares very well for the professional challenges. The job prospects are excellent: in the coming years, about half a million new jobs are expected in the area of production and use of NawaRo. There is a need for energy suppliers, the processing industry, plant construction and mechanical engineering as well as for the production of renewable raw materials, authorities and municipalities. Other relevant occupational fields can be found in consulting, training and research.
New lecture halls and laboratories in a new building are available for studying at the TUM Campus Straubing. Further buildings will follow in the coming years. Close cooperation with the other institutions in Straubing, such as the Technology and Support Centre (TFZ) , Central Agricultural Resources Marketing and Energy Network (C.A.R.M.E.N. e.V.) and the Fraunhofer Project Group , will provide further insights into research. Straubing is an attractive “city of short distances”. Everything is within walking distance and idyllically situated on the Danube. Close to the Bavarian forest, the city welcomes its visitors with an impressive city silhouette. Students are also interested in the colourful variety of cafés and pubs, which invite them to discuss and relax. Straubing has a wide range of sports and cultural activities to offer, and its Bavarian charm will delight you.
