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.
