Biology is involved in solving many problems of the present and future. Biologists are much in demand. In many areas, their scientific expertise is indispensable when it comes to finding cutting-edge solutions, e.g. for the conservation of our natural environment and biodiversity, sustainable use of all terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, development of new materials, biomedicine and biotechnology, national and international nature conservation and blue sciences. As a graduate of the Master's programme, you will have the prerequisites to take on specialist and management tasks in many of these fields – a profession with a future!
The International Master's programme in Industrial and Environmental Biology deepens the technical and methodological competences acquired through a Bachelor's degree in biology. A main feature of the programme is project and research-oriented teaching in close cooperation with partners in the region.
In the focal areas of industrial biology and environmental biology, you will acquire specialist knowledge and methodological skills relating to specific issues and problem areas, project management, (intercultural) communication, presentations, team leadership, self-reflection and critical faculties.
We expressly encourage and support our students to assume social responsibility through active participation in projects and events on sustainable future-oriented developments.
In the Master's programme, students are generally free to complete their projects or Master's thesis abroad. The courses already regularly offered by the following lecturers expand the range of courses.
Also in the field of technical and applied biology, the HSB maintains numerous collaborations with national and international institutions.
