Study program "Biological, Pharmaceutical and Process Engineering“

Are you studying biotechnology, pharmaceutical engineering, process engineering or a related field? Then you should add a semester at Germany's greenest university to your CV! Our exchange programme "Biological, Pharmaceutical and Process Engineering " offers the opportunity to choose from a wide range of courses in the fields of engineering and process engineering. Possible subjects include "Physics", "Thermodynamics", "Lab Work" or project work. The subjects are either offered in English or can be taken without German language skills. In addition, you can study German as a foreign language.

Participants of the programme will live and study on our modern campus with over 2,500 other students. All student apartments are affordable and fully equipped. They have high-speed internet access and a connection to our university intranet.

The university does not charge tuition fees for the semester of study. The general admission fee is approximately 250 euros per semester, which also provides free train travel in the region.

Students benefit from the advantages of our "Buddy" concept, in which German students provide individual help with orientation and integration into campus life.
