Biotechnology combines biology, chemistry, medicine, and engineering sciences for the discovery, development and production of products ranging from fuels and foods over complex proteins to specialised pharmaceuticals and whole organisms with novel abilities.

You will learn how to work with cells and microorganisms. By studying cells' properties alone and in relation to their surroundings, you get a scientific basis for altering the cells' properties.

You can either follow the general study or specialise in a specific area of the field. In addition, you will work with computer programmes that can read and systemise large amounts of genetic data, and computer models that help describe cell functions and understand the mechanisms behind various diseases etc. 

Career Opportunities  

Completion of the International Programme in Biotechnology at Aalborg University will qualify participants for jobs in research, development, management and production in biotechnological, food and medical industries, as well as in education. Successful candidates will also be qualified to apply for further PhD studies.


To find out whether the level of your foreign certificate or diploma satisfies the general entry requirements, you should contact Aalborg University directly.
