The Bio- and Environmental Technology degree programme unites chemistry and biology with the engineering sciences of biotechnology and environmental technology. The combination of Biotechnology and Environmental Technology offers a unique possibility to study two future technologies simultaneously. Biotechnologists work on the engineering applications of biology. They produce medicines, biological fertilizers, biofuels and biogas. Biotechnology is very important in medicine for the regeneration of tissue, the treatment of infections or the diagnosis of illnesses. Environmental Technologists purify waste water or air, clean up contaminated sites and reduce current and future pollution in their planning of industrial plants.
