Bachelor of Engineering in Biotechnology

Our Bachelor Program of Engineering in Biotechnology combines biology, chemistry and science of engineering in close collaboration with international biotech companies

During the studies you will learn to apply in depth knowledge of biochemical and biotechnological processes according to production of drugs (medicine), food industry and environmental challenges.

You will be a part of a little and highly professional environment working closely together with the biotech industry in Kalundborg, the biotech city of Denmark.

Companies like Novo Nordisk, Equinor and Novozymes are some of the companies you will meet in Kalundborg thereby learning about biotech challenges and opportunities at big scale.

A program with a high degree of interaction between theory and practice
As a Bachelor of Engineering in Biotechnology you acquire a wide range of career opportunities in the global job market - in Denmark or abroad …
The sixth term of your studies is designated to an internship at an engineering company.
The Municipality of Kalundborg guarantees accommodation for students.

Why take a biotech education in Kalundborg, you might think?

There can actually be a very good reason to do so. Just like Silicon Valley has become centre for all kinds of internet companies, a number of world leading biotechnological companies have settled in and around Kalundborg.

In Kalundborg you find the world's largest insulin production facility as well as enzyme production, Denmarks greatest refinery and some of the world's best engineers.

This creates a unique environment. And it is really quite special to be part of.

I am born in Romania, raised in Greece and I am studying the Bachelor of Engineering in Biotechnology on my 2nd semester.

I am 19 years old and moved to Denmark in August 2019 to start on the biotech education because I heard about the great opportunities that I can get here. Even though this education is new, I can see that everyone is trying to improve it and I'd like to be a part of it too.

Akshita Tripathi

I come from India and I am 20 years old. Currently I am in the 2nd semester of Bachelor of Engineering in Biotechnology and a student worker at Novo Nordisk. 

Studying at Absalon is fun and challenging, and it gives me a lot of opportunities as it is in a close collaboration with major Biotech companies in Denmark and abroad. The special thing about this campus is that Kalundborg is the Biotech city of Denmark and it has a very special system of Kalundborg symbiosis which is one of a kind. This gives the aspiring engineers a very big chance to learn and deal with real life situations. I would like to share my experience so far with everyone and will be very happy to help with all your queries.
