Course Description

State of The Art

Biotechnology constitutes one of the key disciplines of the 21st century, with enormous potential for growth and professional development. On the one hand that is due to progress made in biomedical research, leading to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. At the same time the chemical industry is showing a growing interest in biotechnological processes to reduce its environmental footprint and increase the efficiency of the methods employed. In addition to the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries, which make use of biotechnological processes in varying degrees, there is now a biotechnology-based industry in its own right, in which added value is generated primarily with the help of biotechnological principles.


The Master’s program in Biotechnology is designed to communicate the knowledge, methodological skills and problem-solving competence needed to tackle a very wide range of scientific and engineering problems.

Excellent Education Guarantee

First-class faculty from the worlds of science, engineering and business, a strong industry orientation and the limited number of places guarantee excellent conditions for study and student support in keeping with the MCI’s motto “Mentoring the Motivated” plus attractive prospects for the future. As a technical university program positioned at the interface with business and management, the Master’s program satisfies the highest international standards.


With its focus on industrial and pharmaceutical biotechnology, the study program is designed to enable graduates to convert laboratory
results in the field of bioscience into full-scale industrial processes.

The Master’s program combines various methodological modules – such as molecular biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, biotechnological separation processes, bioanalytics and bioinformatics – with applications-oriented modules covering the whole field of biotechnology, including pharmaceutical biotechnology, food biotechnology and industrial biotechnology.

The program is also designed to take account of the growing interest shown in trade and industry in graduates with the ability to fulfill overarching functions like quality, project and process management, including the relevant key competences (working methods, social competence, team working skills, etc). In addition to solving technical problems, graduates are also in a position to evaluate the economic impacts of the decisions taken. Thanks to project-based learning, industry visits, practicals and laboratory work, the study program also has a strong focus on practical relevance.
