|Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences||7 Semesters|
Modern biotechnology, or bioengineering, is a complex, multi-faceted field. On the one hand, bioengineering focuses on the development of new products from biological systems, for example, detergents, cosmetics, and active pharmaceutical ingredients. On the other hand, its scope extends beyond that.
It extends to developing and realizing solutions to the challenges of the future: finding cures for diseases, reversing the effects of climate change, finding alternative resources and fuel sources, and addressing the health-related issues of an aging human population. These examples all share a common link: a discipline that bridges the gap between the natural sciences and technology and applies these fields to (parts of) living organisms.
Our Bioengineering course of study provides a thorough understanding of the diverse and complex aspects of biotechnology. From the very first semester, the tight intermeshing of natural and engineering sciences allows you to fully understand and utilize the potential of biotechnology.
Different forms of interactive learning, such as lectures, seminars, lab courses, internships, exercises, and project works, are used to impart the following:
1) classical educational contents (e.g., mathematics, physics, chemistry, cell biology, and microbiology, but also basics of law and management) and
2) state-of-the-art bioengineering subjects (e.g., enzyme engineering, bioprocess engineering, molecular biology)
Intensive supervision in small groups and excellent facilities in modern laboratories enhance the learning experience and allow students to train on industry-standard equipment.
