Biomolecular Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of science. It has assumed a central role in the field of molecular biosciences as it transfers theoretical knowledge of chemical and biological processes into practice using engineering principles. In this context, new chemical methods, techniques, and syntheses are developed in order to study biological processes in molecular detail. Furthermore, molecular-biological procedures are implemented in order to design biomolecules and to change biological systems selectively.

The Bachelor’s programme Biomolecular Engineering at TU Darmstadt is a joint course of study offered by the Departments of Chemistry and Biology. It comprises, in particular, the essential methods and skills of modern general, organic, and physical chemistry as well as of the molecular biosciences. The design of molecules and microorganisms to be utilised in the field of bioengineering is in the focus of the programme.
