Biotechnology & Process Engineering, Master of Science (M.Sc.)

In the 21st century, the biotechnical and chemical industries are facing new challenges. Biotechnological processes must be integrated into classical chemical process engineering. At the same time, the challenges of the energy and resources turnaround must be overcome. Nanomaterials, ionic fluids, biocomposites, and bioinspired materials are currently opening up new opportunities in materials science; while biopharmaceuticals, biomaterials, and cell-based constructs promise new therapies and thus advances in medicine. 

This degree programme is taught in German.

Good knowledge of German is an essential prerequisite to successfully completing the degree programme. Proof of German language proficiency at DSH-2 level or equivalent is required for admission. For detailed information, please see the German version of the study programme site.
