The master program Miniaturised Biotechnology with the degree "Master of Science" makes the Micro- and Nanotechnologie accesible for applications in the biotechnology. It is an interdisciplinary program that convey almost equally microsystemtechnologic and biotechnologic competences.
This program includes a research-oriented education in miniaturised methods in biotechnology. This includes but is not restricted to technologies related to micro-organisms. The study teaches knowledge and skills for developing miniaturised and automatised systems for handling, characterisation and use of biomolecules, eucaryotic cells, cell aggregates and ensembles as well as small tissue fragments, multi-cellular systems and internal reactions.
This way, the education profile is tailored to problems of bio processes technology as well as to biomedical and diagnostic requirements. There is a special focus on technical interfaces and substantial boundary surfaces. The educational profile for micro-biologists closes the gap between classic natural sciences and engineering sciences in micro-systemtechnologically qualified biotechnologies.
The program deepens the theoretical knowledge of natural and technologic sciences relevant to biotechnology, especially the requirements for development, production and handling of micro- and nanosystems for biotechnical applications. There is a special focus on practical skills by means of independent lab work and the integration into current research projects.
Detailed Overview: Modultafel Miniaturised Biotechnology
Man lernte unglaublich viel Neues und Spannendes über die kleine Welt der Mikro- und Nanotechnologie und auch die biologischen Aspekte kamen nicht zu kurz. Das dritte und vierte Semester vereinte dann das gewonnene Wissen und ermöglichte es mir in vielen Praktika und der Masterarbeit aufgrund von einer guten technischen Ausstattung das ganze Studium zu komplettieren.
