Life Science Engineering (LSE)

Life Science Engineering (LSE) (M.Sc.)

The Master’s degree program in Life Science Engineering deals with the application of state-of-the-art technologies for biological systems and processes. The focus is on the development of innovative solutions for the fields of medicine, environmental and food technology. As a graduate of this program, you will have a broad knowledge of biochemistry, biotechnology, biophysics and process engineering. The interdisciplinary orientation of the degree program enables you to work in a wide range of professional fields and face the challenges of the future.

What is the degree program about?

Life Science Engineering is the engineering discipline that deals with the modification of substances by chemical, physical, biological, microbiological and/or biotechnological processes. The aim is to improve product properties and reduce the number and quantity of undesirable by-products and waste products by continuously optimizing existing processes or using new ones.

The Master’s degree program in LSE lasts four semesters and builds on the knowledge and skills learnt in the Bachelor’s degree program. Students of the degree program learn advanced scientific methods and gain in-depth knowledge, especially in the fields of biological process engineering and (medical) biotechnology.
