Starting from winter term 2015/16 the University of Stuttgart (USTUTT) offers a Master’s Double Degree Program in cooperation with the MAUI Master’s Degree Program (Meio Ambiente Urbano e Industrial; Urban and Industrial Environment) at the Universidade Federal do Paraná (UFPR) in Curitiba, Brazil. 

Once you are an M.Sc. WASTE admitted student you are eligible to apply for the Double Degree. Feel free to check the details and procedures here.

Details and Procedures - Double Degree

Every year, five students will be provided with the opportunity to participate in the Master’s Double Degree Program. The first two semesters have to be completed at the home university. After that, students are eligible to continue their curriculum for the remaining two semesters at the partner university, including the master thesis. It is essential that both programs are completed in accordance with the respective local regulations (both examination regulations) and procedures.

In the end, the courses, examinations, and master thesis taken at UFPR will be fully recognized by the University of Stuttgart and replaced as equivalent to examinations taken in Germany.

After successful completion of both programs, students are awarded the Master’s Degree from UFPR and from USTUTT.
