Program description


Nanobiotechnology is a very recent and fascinating area of activity and  research, which may be called the "Fundamental Technology of the 21st  Century". Several potential applications can already be identified, for  example in the field of medical diagnostics and therapeutics and the  development of new materials. The distance learning program, unique in  Germany and offered by the DISC since 2004, caters to the highly  interdisciplinary nature of nanobiotechnology.

Upon successful completion of this distance study program the graduates  have acquired skills that enable them to strongly improve products and  processes in the organizations in which they operate.

Thus the study program makes a contribution to the high demand for skilled workers in the  field of nanobiotechnology. The two on-campus weekends contribute to the acquisition of practical skills. This is done in the context of lab work about different characterization procedures in nanotechnology and screening methods in  biology.

The course is held entirely in English - therefore good English language  skills are a necessity.

Admission requirements

The 12 month certificate program is aimed at people, who have already obtained a university or university of applied science (Fachhochschule) qualification in a natural science or engineering or medical subject.

The course is held entirely in English - therefore good English language  skills are a necessity.
