Stuttgart, October 2009

Dear student:

Welcome to the international Master of Science program “Air Quality Control, Solid
Waste and Waste Water Process Engineering” (WASTE) at the Universität Stuttgart!
During the next four semesters, all students participating in this study program will meet
a new challenge. Those of you visiting Germany from abroad will become acquainted
with a new country, a different culture, a new university, and possibly a new area of
specialization. German students will study in a foreign language and follow an
international degree system.
In this guide, the Universität Stuttgart is introduced, some important aspects of everyday
life are described, and the study program is explained to you in detail. With it, we hope
to get you started in your new environment, to help you find your way around Stuttgart
and the university, and to inform you about what you can expect during your stay.
We hope that this booklet will help you choose your individual course of studies and will
support you throughout the study program. We are well aware that there will still be
plenty of questions and would be glad to answer them, so do not hesitate to talk to the
WASTE team or to professors, staff, and students of the various institutes.
The Welcome Guide (handed out by the Office of International Affairs (IA)) is an
important source of information completing this study guide, so you should keep it until
the end of your studies.
We wish you a successful completion of the WASTE Program and an enjoyable stay in
Stuttgart!

1 The Universität Stuttgart
1.1 Introduction
Compared to German’s traditional universities, the Universität Stuttgart is rather young.
Founded in 1829, the former technical university has integrated the social sciences and
the humanities to become an internationally renowned future-orientated place of
science and research. The close interlinking of research and study allows the
Universität Stuttgart to educate students excellently for economical, governmental and
scientific demands as well as to hold a leading position in both basic and applied
research. With 4,500 employees and approximately 20,000 students of which around
5,000 are international students, the Universität Stuttgart is an important partner in
German’s traditional high-tech-area of Baden-Württemberg.
The annual budget of the Universität Stuttgart excluding construction expenses
amounts about € 372 million. Amongst it, over more than € 135 million were acquired by
Stuttgart’s scientists from public and private principals for research projects. With this
budget, the Universität Stuttgart holds a leading position in Germany – a merit of
performance-oriented research and determined science management.
Characteristic of the Universität Stuttgart is a combination of practical orientation and
the imparting of basic and methodical knowledge; for both working areas, there are
outstanding prerequisites available. The Vaihingen Campus hosting two thirds of the
institutes has in direct neighbourhood institutes of the Max-Planck and the Fraunhofer
Society, and the German Aerospace and Aviation Research Institute (Deutsche
Forschungsanstalt für Luft- und Raumfahrt). The openness and cooperation readiness
of the Universität Stuttgart is also shown by the close cooperation with numerous
institutes; lots of firms use the institutes’ facilities as customers.
Numerous interlinks exist with the city of Stuttgart and the regional environment, too: as
employer of about 5,000 people, the Universität Stuttgart is an important economical
factor and an asked partner for innovation in research and technology. Its graduates
shape the economy and industry of the middle Neckar region. Additionally, quality of life
is also good due to the nice landscape between woods and vineyards, the Swabian Alb
and the Black Forest with attractive occasions for free time activities and numerous
cultural offers from ballet to variety theatre.
1.2 Geographic Structure
As mentioned above, the Universität Stuttgart is made up of two main campuses, the
Vaihingen Campus located in the suburb of Vaihingen, and the Stadtmitte Campus
downtown Stuttgart. Both campuses are connected via the S-Bahn. Furthermore, some
departments are located in different parts of Stuttgart: the faculty of Process
Engineering is partly situated in the Böblinger Straße and the student union is located in
Fellbach to the east of Stuttgart.
Each campus has its own student dining hall (Mensa) and cafeterias as well as
extensive libraries.
  Tip: Campus Maps can be found in Appendix B!

2 Everyday Life

2.1 Welcome Guide
Some aspects of everyday life may be quite different from those of your home country.
Therefore, the Welcome Guide, which you receive from our Office of International
Affairs, describes many important things that could be relevant during your stay.
2.2 Important Formalities
Although the Universität Stuttgart tries to support you as well as possible, you will not be
able to avoid some formalities. Therefore, the Office of International Affairs has handed
out the Welcome Guide to you informing about the most important things.
Before the beginning of your studies
After having arrived in Stuttgart, some important steps have to be taken in order to get
started. That contains getting an accommodation, enter into a health insurance, a
personal liability insurance (optional), registering at the alien’s registration office and at
the university, opening a bank account, getting a pass for public transportation etc. All
these things are described in detail in the Welcome Guide. In order to save yourself
time, energy, and frustration, you should take the steps mentioned in this guide in the
given order.
During your studies
During your studies, you have to re-register before the start of each semester. This is
done by transferring the administration fee (at the moment about € 113) with the
transfer form you received at registration. Note the time limit within which re-registration
must take place (Rückmeldefrist), which is indicated on your enrolment form
(Immatrikulationsbescheinigung).
  Note: If you miss that time limit, you might be removed from the register of students
(exmatrikuliert), which could also cause big problems for you concerning your visa and
residence permit!
At the end of your studies
Before leaving Stuttgart, you still have to lead through some formalities including the
removal from the register of students (Exmatrikulation) as well as cancellation of your
health insurance contract and your alien’s registration. These steps are mentioned in
the Welcome Guide, too.

1 Importance
Air and water pollution control as well as the removal of waste are challenges facing
society throughout the world. We have to face these challenges and try to find
appropriate solutions. 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 Universität Stuttgart has a long tradition
of teaching and research in these areas and, for that reason, is offering an
interdisciplinary Master of Science degree in Environmental Engineering called “Air
Quality Control, Solid Waste and Waste Water Process Engineering” (WASTE).
The program will provide students with the education necessary to meet those
multidisciplinary demands. Not only is the scientific structure ideal in Stuttgart, but there
are also very close ties between the academic world and the industry in the state of
Baden-Württemberg. In Stuttgart, students have a wide range of opportunities to gain
first-hand practical experience in some of the small and medium-sized companies that
form the backbone of this state’s economy.
This degree program is designed for persons wishing to find employment outside of
Germany or in international operating companies and will provide participants with
profound knowledge in the state of the art in the field of environmental technology. It will
cover air quality, solid waste and waste water control and treatment technologies based
on the fundamentals of process engineering.


2 Outline and Curriculum
The Master of Science Program “Air Quality Control, Solid Waste and Waste Water
Process Engineering” is designed to be completed within four semesters and starts in
the winter semester of each academic year.
In the first semester all students take the core modules concentrating on the advanced
fundamentals of environmental and process engineering. Another two core modules
have to be taken in the second semester.

At the beginning of the second semester, the students choose two of the three
specialised areas “Air Quality Control”, “Solid Waste” and “Waste Water”. Each
specialised area consists of two core modules, one in the second and one in the third
semester. Depending on the individual study plan of each student, additional 27 credits
of elective modules have to be taken in the second and third semester. The individual
study plan enables the students to organise their studies in accordance with their own
interests and needs and allows to study more broad or more specialised.

The modules are supplemented by scientific and practical work within the research
activities of the university institutes. An advisor ensures that each individual program is
efficient and goal oriented.

The fourth semester is dedicated to the Master Thesis which can be prepared in the
Universität Stuttgart or outside university in a company, in another university or in a
research facility as well.

Classes are taught in English. International students without prior knowledge of the
German language have to participate in German language courses accompanying the
program throughout the first and second semester. Knowledge of German language is a
very helpful skill for the personal career e.g. if one wants to do his PhD in Germany,
WASTE Study Guide                       Chapter II: The Program                              Page 19


work in German industries or in cooperation with a German company or research
institute. Students who are proficient in German may also choose additional electives
taught in German.

Upon successful completion of the program, the students will be awarded a Master of
Science degree.

2.1 First Semester

During the first semester (= winter semester 2009 / 2010) all students take the core
modules which contain fundamental subjects of Process and Environmental
Engineering. These modules prepare the students for the specialised areas and
modules of the second and third semester.

2.4 Master Thesis

The Master Thesis ought to show that the student's ability to solve a scientific problem
of his / her subject during a limited amount of time. The Master Thesis can be prepared
in English or German language. It can only be started after having passed all
examinations of the previous semesters. The Master Thesis has to be finished after six
months. In exceptional cases, the time can be extended up to nine months.
WASTE Study Guide                  Chapter II: The Program                        Page 23


2.5 German Language Classes

Part of the studies are mandatory German language classes during the first and second
semester. Students who are not German native speakers or cannot show a proof of a
complete German course in “Grundstufe” have to participate in the Intensive German
Language Course which starts at the beginning of September. The course prepares the
students for the German language courses during first and second semester.
Students with a proof of minimum “Grundstufe” will be exempted the intensive course
and the two semester courses. Instead of the German courses they have to choose
modules of 6 credits (or 2*3 credits).
Although the complete program can be done in English language, German language
classes are part of the program. Knowledge of German language is a very helpful skill
for the personal career e.g. if one wants to do his PhD in Germany, work in German
industries or in cooperation with a German company or research institute. Students who
are proficient in German may also choose additional electives taught in German.

4 Information about the regulations of the examinations
   Students have to register for the examinations of the first semester.
   For the second and third semester, students have to fill in and submit the form
   “individual study plan and registration for examinations”. The form has to be handed
   in within four weeks after the beginning of lectures of the second semester.
   The following grades are possible and will be listed in the transcript:
   1,0; 1,3; 1,7; 2,0; 2,3; 2,7; 3,0; 3,3; 3,7; 4,0 and 5,0.
   Examinations marked „insufficient“ (5,0) are classified as failed.
   If a module consists of more than one exam, each individual exam of this module
   has to be passed.
   Students who failed exams at the first date have to attend the next possible
   repetition.
Page 24                           Chapter II: The Program               WASTE Study Guide


   Repetition exams are possible as written or oral examinations. It is determined by
   the examiner which mode is applied in the re-exam.
   Students who fail a written repetition have to take an oral supplementary
   examination.
   Possible grades: 4,0 (passed) or 5,0 (failed)
   Students who fail this first repetition (written+supplementary oral or oral without
   supplementary oral) have the possibility to do a second repetition only in one case.
   A basic principle is: Students who do not attend an examination must have a
   convincing reason (e.g. a medical certificate in the case of illness). Otherwise the
   examination is classified as failed (5,0).
   Students who were absent with a valid excuse (e.g. medical certificate) at the first
   date of examinations have to take the exam at the next date of examinations
   whereas that examination is classified as their first attempt.
   Students who were registered but were absent without exculpation (e.g. a medical
   certificate) are considered to have failed. These students have to attend the next
   “repetition”.
   Only failed exams can be repeated. Exams, once passed, may not be repeated
   The final average grade is calculated on the basis of the weighted grades of all
   modules. Following final grades are possible:

   1,0 – 1,2 = very good with distinction (exceptional performance with distinction)
   1,0 – 1,5 = very good (exceptional performance)
   1,6 – 2,5 = good (performance exceeding average requirements)
   2,6 – 3,5 = satisfactory (performance which satisfies the average requirements)
   3,6 – 4,0 = passed (performance which satisfies requirements with deficiencies)
   5,0 = failed (performance which does not satisfy the requirements due to
   fundamental deficiencies)


Students have to fulfill the following requirements in order to pass and receive a degree
in the Master of Science program “Air Quality Control, Solid Waste and Waste Water
Process Engineering” (WASTE):
   All the mandatory modules and chosen modules have to be passed. If a module
   consists of more than one exam all individual exams of this module have to be
   passed.
   The Master Thesis has to be passed.

5 Master Thesis regulations

• The Master Thesis should demonstrate the candidate's ability to work independently
  and within a given time-limit on a problem in his area of study according to scientific
  principles.
• The topic for the Master Thesis is assigned only when the candidate, in accordance
  with the individual study plan, has passed the exams of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd semester.
  With the agreement of the Chairman of the Examination Committee (please contact
  the Course Director), exceptions to this rule are possible.
WASTE Study Guide                Chapter II: The Program                        Page 25


• The Master Thesis can only be assigned, supervised and evaluated by professors
  and lecturers belonging to the Masters program WASTE. In exceptional cases the
  topic for a Master Thesis may be assigned, supervised and evaluated by a professor
  from another department or university. This must be confirmed by the Chairman of
  the WASTE Examination Committee.
• The candidate must be given the opportunity to suggest a topic.
• Starting date of the Master Thesis has to be within three months after passing all
  modules.
• Registration: The candidate has to hand in the “Master Thesis Process Slip” promptly
  to the WASTE Office (one month after the starting date of the thesis at the latest).
• Upon request, the Chairman of the Examination Committee is responsible for a topic
  being assigned punctually to the candidate.
• The Master Thesis can also be assigned in the form of group-work, provided that the
  individual candidate's contribution (identified by the citation of paragraphs, page-
  numbers, or other objective and unambiguous criteria) can be evaluated, and
  satisfies the requirements of the exam regulations.
• The topic of the Master Thesis may only once be rejected, and only during the first
  four weeks of work upon the thesis.
• The time-limit for completion of the Master Thesis is six months. At the candidate's
  request, provided adequate reasons are given and the advisor approves, this can be
  extended to 9 months. The application for extension has to be done at the WASTE
  office minimum one month before the original deadline of completion.
• When handing in the Master Thesis, the candidate must provide written assurance
  that he produced the work independently, using no sources or assistance other than
  those indicated. In the case of a group assignment, this same written assurance
  applies to the candidate's contribution to be assessed.

Acceptance and Marking of the Master Thesis

• The thesis must be handed in punctually to the examiner. The time of the submission
  must be noted in the Master Thesis Process Slip under § 3.1 “Date of completion”. If
  the time-limit is exceeded, the Master Thesis is to be marked "insufficient" (5,0).
• Part of the Thesis and part of generating the grade is a presentation about the topic
  and the results. The presentation has to be done one month after the “Deadline of
  completion” at the latest.
• The Master Thesis must be evaluated by two examiners. The first examiner is the
  professor who assigned the thesis topic. The second examiner has to be chosen by
  the first examiner and has to be an examiner in the WASTE program. If the
  evaluations of the two examiners do not agree, the arithmetic mean of the two
  evaluations is to constitute the grade. If an arithmetic mean of two evaluations is
  between two possible grades, the exam office will round up the grade in favour of the
  student. In the case of a repetition of the Master Thesis the Examination Committee
  nominates the second examiner.
