Master Programmes

Master Programme in Biotechnology

The master study programme in biotechnology (taught in English) builds on a bachelor study programme in a suitable subject (for instance chemistry or molecular biology). A key discipline of our century, Biotechnology is concerned with the utilization of biosystems required for realization of applications in industry, agriculture, environment and medicine.

Main focus of the programme is the development of interdisciplinary competences for the technological treatment of biosystems. By the same token, the education communicates process-technical expertise for the development and operation of biotechnological applications and methods. Current and future-oriented fields of molecular biotechnology, environmental and food technology, enzyme technology and biocatalysis as well as bioprocess engineering make up a part of this course of studies.

Graduates are awarded the academic degree "DiplomingenieurIn", abbreviated "Dipl.-Ing." or “DI”. This degree is equivalent to a “Master of Science”, abbreviated “MSc.”.

Master Programme in Biochemistry and Molecular Biomedical Sciences

The master study programme in biochemistry and molecular biomedical sciences is highly interdisciplinary and situated at the interface between biology, medicine and chemistry. It focuses on future key disciplines like medical biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, structural biology and enzymology.

The master programme prepares students for occupations in fundamental and applied research, especially in areas like medicine or in pharmaceutical industry. Students will be prepared theoretically but also via extensive practical work to be able to independently carry out biochemical and molecular biological experiments.

Graduates are awarded the academic degree "Master of Science", abbreviated "MSc.".

Master Programme in Molecular Microbiology

The master study programme in molecular microbiology offers in-depth knowledge in microbiology, focusing on molecular cell biology, bacteriology (in particular the medically relevant aspects of infection biology and environmental biology). Students will be prepared theoretically but also via extensive practical work to be able to independently carry out microbiological and molecular biological experiments and to plan and conduct analyses. Furthermore, the students acquire problem solving skills and the ability to critically reflect existing approaches as well as results.

Graduates are awarded the academic degree "Master of Science", abbreviated "MSc.".

Master Programme in Plant Sciences

The master study programme in plant sciences reflects the diversities in biology based on basic and functional plant biology. This interdisciplinary programme offers a broad range of topics and methodologies which provide a fundamental education in the areas of "biotope and biodiversity", "physiology and cell biology”, and "biotic interactions”. The content of the programme includes molecular biology, ultrastructural analysis as well as ecosystem research.

During the first two semesters, knowledge that has been obtained from a bachelor's degree programme in either biology or molecular biology is extended. The 3rd and 4th semesters aim to include students in current research projects which should lead them towards the independent preparation of their masters' theses. Students will have the freedom to choose from a wide range of electives which will allow them to adapt their individual and professional interests to their academic studies.

Graduates are awarded the academic degree "Master of Science", abbreviated "MSc.".
