Biotechnologist (m/f)

Covering a broad field, biotechnology is a classic cross-sectional technology – your studies will bring you face to face with biology and biochemistry but also with physics, chemistry, process engineering, materials science and IT. Essentially, it is all about applying science and technology to living organisms in order to develop new drugs but also to manufacture everyday products more efficiently. Are you ready to delve deeper into the place where enzymes, cells and organisms meet technical applications?
