Biomolecular Engineering

Master of Science; tuition language: German

Biomolecular Engineering – Molekulare Biotechnologie, M.Sc.


The degree programme Master of Science in Biomolecular Engineering or Molecular Biotechnology offers students the opportunity to target current issues of their own choosing in molecular biosciences and biochemistry.

The Biomolecular Engineering programme conveys theoretical knowledge about chemical and biological processes at the molecular level and creates a technological platform for a targeted structuring of biologically active molecules and production/synthesis processes. This allows students to gain insight into how biological macro-molecules function and into how innovative products and processes are developed, leading from custom-made enzymes to biomolecular-based analytical methods and drugs.

Upon successful completion of a Master of Science degree, there is the opportunity to begin working towards a Ph.D. either at the Technical University of Darmstadt or at another national or international university: Ph.D. at Technical University of Darmstadt

Graduates from Molecular Biotechnology typically go on to research careers in the chemical industry or at a university. For this reason it makes sense for holders of Bachelor’s degrees to go to do a Master’s degree. The Master of Science in Biomolecular Engineering is designed to train bioengineers and molecular biotechnologists who can successfully meet various challenges in their future careers. Graduates may take up careers in industry, for example, or in research institutes (e.g. research, development and production in the pharmaceutical or biotechnological industry, or in the food industry), or engage in research as part of a doctoral program.

Students of Biomolecular Engineering will acquire a broad foundation in the natural sciences in the initial semesters and be confronted with various interdisciplinary issues. It therefore makes sense for Bachelor degree holders to choose to do a Master’s degree in any of the related science departments.
