Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)


With its interdisciplinary subjects, modern biotechnology is one of the key technologies of the 21st century. With its Bachelor's degree in biotechnology, BTU offers perfect conditions for entering the biotech industry. In addition to a first professional qualification as a B.Sc., further qualification as a M.Sc. in Biotechnology can also be obtained at BTU.

The structure and contents of the bachelor's programme in biotechnology are based on scientific principles as well as on in-depth knowledge of cell, micro and molecular biology and nanobiotechnology. In addition to a solid theoretical education in line with the latest scientific standards, the biotechnology programme offers a high degree of practical relevance. The practical training takes place under the most modern laboratory conditions and intensive supervision. Due to the high proportion of practical work during the course, a pre-study internship is not necessary. Students are in any case excellently prepared for a practical bachelor's thesis in national and international research institutions and companies.

The 7-semester bachelor's degree in biotechnology can be studied without NC. The high level of technical and methodological competence that graduates acquire in biotechnology studies makes them sought-after specialists in the private sector or further academic careers.
