DescriptionOur Bachelor Program of Engineering in Biotechnology combines biology, chemistry and science of engineering.
During the studies you will learn to apply in depth knowledge of biochemical and biotechnological processes according to production of drugs (medicine), food industry and environmental challenges.
You will get acquainted with methods used in the field of biotechnology of industrial production.
You will also obtain knowledge of engineering principles relevant to the processing of materials by microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa and viruses) or plant and animal cells to create useful products or industrial processes.
Career OpportunitiesAs a Bachelor of Engineering in Biotechnology you acquire a wide range of career opportunities in the global job market - in Denmark or abroad.
You will obtain competences within development and production using biotechnological processes. It could be solving tasks within the fields of health science, nutrition, environment and energy, within areas covering scope of food and medicine production, environmental and energy sectors.
You will qualify for a position as operational and production engineer working with process control based on chemical, physical and biological analysis. Control, regulation and optimization of production processes could also be one of your areas of responsibility.
Moreover, having this education, you can work as a process, trial and development engineer within research and development of new setups in the area of most recent biological production and wastewater purification processes.
About the Degree
The degree focuses on biotechnology, for example how cells are used as small factories in the production of medicine and foodstuffs, or how they are used in purification of wastewater or converting waste into energy - biofuels. You will gain theoretical knowledge within biotechnology and will be working with the following disciplines:
- Cell and microbiology
- Biotechnology and protein chemistry
- General and technical chemistry
- Mathematics and statistics
