The Biotechnical Chemistry course of study provides key competencies in the field of modern chemistry with a focus on chemical applications in systems development and biotechnology. Biotechnical Chemistry is an interdisciplinary science. The focus is on technical applications using biological and chemical principles that also involve living organisms. The aim is to produce chemical compounds, diagnostic methods and the like by developing new or more efficient processes. The course of chemical and biochemical reactions is analysed and synthetically used depending on various external parameters. With the help of physical investigation methods and experimental observations, model concepts are developed that lead to a qualitative and quantitative understanding of substance properties and processes in organisms.
The career prospects in the life science and nanotechnology sector are excellent in the long term. The demand for specially trained specialists in this field at universities, research institutions and industry will continue to grow in the coming years.
