What is the degree program about?

Chemical and Biological Engineering (CBI) deals with the modification of substances through chemical, physical and biological processes. As a link between chemistry and biology as well as apparatus and plant construction, the task of chemical and bioengineers is to implement the processes for substance modification (e.g. syntheses) developed in the laboratory on a production scale. This requires knowledge of the natural sciences (chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics) and engineering.

During the degree program you learn (for example):

  • to develop bioreactors used to grow microalgae
  • to understand industrial processes such as acetic acid production via fermentation of microorganisms
  • the improvement of industrial processes e.g. hydrogen storage
  • about thermochemical energy storage such as adsorption in zeolites for more effective thermal use. Zeolites are crystalline aluminosilicates used also in detergents for water softening.
