Studying PPS Universities and Curriculum

Where we teach and how we train

PPS – Process and Plant Safety is taught at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and at the Kaiserslautern University of Technology as a master module. It is an interdisciplinary field for engineering, chemistry and other fields of study.


Target groups

The PPS module especially addresses to students from these fields of studies:

  • Mechanical engineering and process engineering
  • Bio- and Chemical engineering
  • Industrial engineering
  • Chemistry
  • Energy economics
  • Technical economics

and students from other areas of study that are of technical nature who want to enhance their knowledge in the area of process and plants safety.


There are no specific requirements in regard to knowledge. Basics in fluid dynamics, thermodynamic and technical chemistry however will make understanding the lecture easier. The lecture is offered in German and sufficient knowledge of German language is also necessary.

PSS is a strongly interdisciplinary field of study – many areas of study are important for PPS experts. PPS curriculum comprises of the following topics:
