Bachelor programme Biological Chemistry (E) (DDP) (IP)

Content and focus of the degree programme:

In the bachelor's programme in Biological Chemistry an emphasis is placed on all those areas of chemistry that are relevant for understanding the function and analysis of biological systems in general and on the areas of biology in which chemical processes are of significance. Students will acquire basic knowledge in the areas of general and inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry. Afterwards they will substantially deepen their training in biochemistry and biology. In the field of biology a special focus is placed on molecular biology and bioanalytics. In addition to factual knowledge special emphasis is placed on acquiring problem-solving skills and the ability to keep pace with the rapid development taking place in the field of biological chemistry. The degree programme provides an education in the fields of engineering and natural sciences and also prepares students for research in the areas of biomedical research, pharmaceutical research, biological and environmental analytics, medical-diagnostic laboratory and biotechnology. The language of instruction is English.
