Biochemical and Chemical Engineering (Master)

Laborversuch am Institut für Partikeltechnik

Key data

Degree Master of Science (Dual Degree possible)
Standard duration of study 4 semesters
Language of Instruction German
Start of programme winter and summer semester
Admission free admission (special admission requirements)

You have already completed a Bachelor’s degree in the field of process engineering and want to deepen your knowledge of biological or chemical processes? If so, the Master’s in Biochemical and Chemical Engineering is just the right degree programme for you. Learn how to manufacture implants using insights into biological materials or find out how to optimise chemical and thermal processes with innovative apparatus.

You can choose from a wide variety of modules such as food chemistry, biotechnology or environmental sciences, allowing you to pursue your personal interests and focus on biological or chemical processes. The combination of bioengineering and chemical engineering, however, means that you will get to work in many different areas of research and production in your future professional life.


What is special about TU Braunschweig?

Focus on specialisation in an interesting environment

Braunschweig is an attractive research region and studying here means you are at the cutting edge of science. Our close ties with TU research centres such as the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF), the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFL) and the Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ) promote practical teaching and give you the opportunity to establish business contacts. You can get additional insights into the latest scientific research thanks to our various cooperation partners such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR) or the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), National Metrology Institute. From collaborating with the high-tech workshop Protohaus to succeeding with the Cluster of Excellence or setting the world record for the largest paper aeroplane—we are part of the action!


Options over obligations

In the Master’s programme, students take a few compulsory courses. These build on the basics of the Bachelor’s programme and are the foundation for the further content of the programme. The majority of the Master’s programme, however, consists of courses that students choose according to their own interests. Thanks to a variety of elective courses, each student develops a personal profile and finds their own specialisation.



On the one hand, the Master’s programme in Biochemical and Chemical Engineering offers a clear focus on either the field of bioengineering or chemical engineering. On the other hand, students can choose modules from the fields of biology/biotechnology, chemistry, food chemistry and environmental sciences from other faculties and will therefore receive a very broad and interdisciplinary education.
