Study objectives

The Berlin Brandenburg region is an internationally important centre for biotechnology with above-average growth rates. This is giving the connection between biotechnology, physics and information technology an increasing amount of scientific and technological importance.

Biosystems technology sits at the interface between molecular biology, surface technologies and microsystem engineering, comprising biohybrid systems specially intended for extracting analytical data in the genomic and proteomic fields, but also in the areas of medical diagnostics and food. Biomolecules, boundaries and detector systems take centre stage. Evaluating and making links in the analysis of the sometimes huge quantities of data requires a close relationship with bioinformatics.

The Biosystems Technology/Bioinformatics Bachelor's degree programme of TH Wildau meets the interdisciplinary needs that are created: Students acquire both knowledge and skills in the fields of biology, biochemistry and bioanalysis, in the areas of information technology and bioinformatics, as well as physics, micro and biohybrid engineering. The practical component of the degree programme means that students also gain knowledge from experience and the ability to make decisions on issues in bioinformatics and bioanalysis. At the same time they also gain insight into how the industry operates, economic contexts as well as developing their social skills.
