Program description

Chemistry is the scientific study of elements and compounds made up of atoms, molecules, and ions: their composition, structure, behavior, and the changes that occur when they react with other substances. Biotechnology is the application of biology to the solution of real-world problems, with a profit element required. The two disciplines are linked by their molecular approach as well as their enormous commercial importance.

The transdisciplinary CBT study program includes organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry modules, as well as relevant aspects of mathematics, engineering, and industrial practice. The goal of this study program's biotechnology is to learn how the industry can use biocatalysts and biomolecules to contribute to a more sustainable future. Another major aspect of CBT is biorefining, or the use of renewable rather than fossil resources; this will introduce students to the concept and practice of the "circular economy."
Six semesters of study totaling 180 ECTS credit points comprise the three-year undergraduate program (CP). The 3C-Model, an innovative and student-centered modularization scheme, groups the disciplinary content of the three study years according to overarching themes.

The Chemistry and Biotechnology degree program provides students with the knowledge, research techniques, and problem-solving skills required for a career in chemistry and/or biotechnology, as well as for further studies at the Master's or PhD level.
