Area of study
Chemistry is the scientific discipline involved with elements and compounds composed of atoms, molecules, and ions: their composition, structure, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other substances. Biotechnology is the application of biology to the solution of real-life challenges, where an element of profit is a prerequisite. The two disciplines are connected by their molecular approach and by their vast commercial importance. The transdisciplinary CBT study program offers chemistry modules that include organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry\; students are also taught the relevant aspects of mathematics, engineering, and industrial practice. The focus of biotechnology in this study program is to learn how the industry can take advantage of biocatalysts and biomolecules in order to contribute to a more sustainable future. Biorefining, i.e. the uses of renewable rather than fossil resources, is another major aspect of CBT\; this will introduce students to the concept and practice of the “circular economy”. The degree program Chemistry and Biotechnology equips students with the knowledge, research techniques, and the problem-solving skills necessary for a career in chemistry and/or biotechnology, and for further studies at the Master or PhD level.
