Biochemistry, biotechnology and the associated fields are rapidly growing industrial activities. An increased demand for scientists in this field is therefore to be expected. The education is aimed to prepare you for such jobs in chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Besides being well prepared for an attractive job with this M.Sc., you can go on to take a Ph.D. at the University of Bremen or at other universities, and continue in fascinating areas of research.
Possibilities for additional qualifications
The graduation enables / authorizes you to take on (promotion) studies for a doctorate.
All courses will be given in English.
If you have proven in the first module to be an excellent student, you can finish your education within eighteen month by working on your laboratory rotations between the terms. The education is organized in mandatory courses (first term), courses which you can select (second term), laboratory rotations (third term), and a Master Thesis (fourth term).
Area foci/ modules for advanced specialisation
You will receive a thorough education in biochemistry and molecular biology, which will expand your previous knowledge in chemistry or biology (or other related studies which you have finished with a B.Sc.)
The mandatory course in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and microbiology will go beyond your present level of knowledge, and expand your background in chemistry or biology. Further modular courses will broaden and deepen the aspects of the courses taught in the first term. You will participate in the work of two different research groups, where you will gain knowledge about the scientific problems of the group, and the experimental techniques and approaches to tackle these problems. In the fourth term, you will work on your Master Thesis and defend it.
