Sustainable Bioprocess Technology

Master of Science

Manufacture environmentally friendly products which are economical on resources

Sustainable Bioprocess Technology and the processing of biomass feedstocks in biorefineries contribute to sustainable development and for this reason are an important part of applied and fundamental research in this area, as well as in the high-tech strategy of the federal government and European research programmes.

Engineers with practical training and a biotechnology background, or biotechnologists with an engineering or process engineering background, can play key roles in the scientific development, operation and  optimization of biotechnology processes for biomass use.

With our master's degree, graduates have the choice of a broad range of career pathways, ranging from R&D and the management of large and medium-sized companies in the processing, biotech and foodstuffs industries, to pharmaceutical companies and government agencies, economic and technology management and universities.
