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. Students are excellently prepared for a practical bachelor's thesis in national and international research institutions and companies.
A special feature of the Bachelor of Science study in Biotechnology is our cooperation with the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) in Shanghai, which is one of the best Chinese universities. Through this cooperation, our students can participate in an exchange program to obtain a double Bachelor degree from both universities.

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.
