The path from gene to product: biotechnology or bioengineering is the engineering discipline of biotechnology. It concerns optimizing and developing biotechnological methods for efficient production in the industry. The degree program is tailored specifically to the needs of industrial applications: pharmaceutical production, the chemical industry and brewing and fermentation technology. A bio-industrial pilot plant at the university provides unique opportunities for a practical and application oriented education.

What we offer you

Your education and research benefit from our close partnerships with well-known biotech companies as well as the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) and the Vienna Institute of Biotechnology (VIBT), who share the campus with us. The partnership enables you to take advantage of the BOKU's excellent infrastructure. In addition to the laboratories, this includes an industrial pilot plant with which production processes can be developed on a laboratory scale and applied on a pilot scale. This provides you with a practice-oriented education, because in the industry the lab and pilot scale is only followed by the production scale in which the product is manufactured in commercially viable quantities. The simulation of the processes on a pilot scale helps determine deviations in each process step and develop process parameters for the commercial evaluation of the production processes. Numerous R&D projects in the degree program offer you the opportunity to work with cutting-edge applications and to make valuable contacts for your future career. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

What makes this degree program special

  • Bioprocess Technology at the BOKU campus
  • Applied research to optimize biotechnological methods for economical production in industry
  • Main areas of application: medical and industrial biotechnology as well as brewing and fermentation technology
