The need for societies in balance in terms of use of resources, production of waste and impact on the environment is more urgent than ever. With the UN sustainability goals, a movement has finally taken up pace and will in the future increase the importance of creative and skilled engineers with expertise in biological processes. Studying Bioengineering at AAU Esbjerg, you will obtain skills and competences in Bioenergy, Biotechnology and Bioprocesses. You can choose to profile yourself towards molecular biotechnology and learn to manipulate the genes in microorganisms to produce natural compounds of interest such as pharmaceuticals, food ingredients, electrolytes in batteries or many other applications of need in society. You can also profile yourself towards fermentation processes and the engineering of the complex biorefinery operations that transfers the compounds from a “good idea in lab” into use in society – where it makes an actual difference.

Career Opportunities
