The Faculty of the Environment and Natural Sciences consists of the Institutes of Environmental Sciences, Environmental and Process Engineering, Materials Chemistry, and Biotechnology, and is organised around the principles of sustainability and health. The focus of the faculty’s engineering practice is therefore partly on environmental efficiency and consistency. Preserving the quality and quantity of abiotic resources is of particular importance in ensuring that protection and restoration of these resources can be secured using biological and technological methods and with the involvement of socio-economic and environmental issues. The energy and resource efficiency of material conversion processes and the use of energy-efficient materials is considered from chemical, biotechnological and procedural perspectives.
There is also teaching of knowledge in the fields of medicine and medical technology, with an emphasis on diagnosis of autoimmune diseases, tumour diseases, infections, and on the development of cell culture systems and tissue systems
