Can we generate new organs from cells? How do biological molecules such as proteins and DNA work? Do you wonder to what extent it is possible to produce better medicine, enzymes or food using biotechnology?
Please note: this Bachelor's degree programme will have a new curriculum as of September 2020, as described below. The former major Biomedical Engineering will continue in 2020-2021 as a seperate Bachelor's degree programme. The other majors are now part of Biology.
In this degree programme in Life Science and Technology you will
learn how to find answers to questions like these. This degree
programme combines elements from a variety of disciplines,
including biology, pharmacy, physics, chemistry and engineering.
You will learn how to use this knowledge to create medical
applications that make people better or improve their quality of
Our students and researchers study the intricate details of living organisms, but also try to build life-like systems from molecules that are not alive. If we are able to build such a synthetic cell we will understand the requirements for life much better, and we might be able to use these cells as factories for new bio-molecules. These are just a few examples of the things we explore. By the time you start this programme, numerous other new research projects will undoubtedly have started up. You’re bound to find something that arouses your interest.
