Biotechnology (B.Sc.)

General Information

Biotechnology is an application-oriented science which combines a number of different disciplines such as biochemistry, microbiology, cell biology and process engineering. It uses enzymes, micro-organisms, cell and tissue cultures to refine products or produce new products. All fields have cutting-edge, well-equipped laboratories at their disposal where students enhance their theoretical knowledge with practical lab. work.

Excellent ranking results: In the German national CHE university ranking published in the ZEIT newspaper, the Biotechnology degree programme at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences was awarded very good marks in several categories.
