What do you find interesting?
Biochemistry is the study of molecules and chemical processes in living organisms, while Cell Biology is concerned with the structure and physiology of cells, their components, and interactions with the environment. The two fields are combined in one comprehensive degree program, which will give you a broad understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms that form the basis of life, including the principles of inheritance and gene expression. This allows BCCB graduates to address in their careers important problems in today’s society, be it by basic or by applied research, for example in the areas of biomedicine, biotechnology, or molecular biology. For this, the BCCB program at Jacobs University provides not only the theoretical background, but also substantial practical training. Students are, furthermore, involved in hands-on research during their studies.
The program is regularly highly ranked in the CHE Rankings and U-Multirank.
The applied curriculum of the BCCB program with many laboratory courses also enables graduates to find work as lab researchers, in other research-related positions, in product development, technical support, marketing or sales in biotech, food, or pharmaceutical companies as well as government agencies. Some graduates have also found non-traditional careers such as management, science policy, or science writing. Outside academia, past graduates of this program work for Arthrex, Catenion, Roche, Leroy Merlin, Boston Consulting Group, and the non-profit partnership Medicines for Malaria Venture.
Today’s business world requires disciplinary knowledge from graduates as well as the ability to apply this knowledge. Career-related services at Jacobs University provide information, counseling and training, networks, and events. Jacobs University’s students participate in trainings on project management, business communication, job interview skills, and more. Digital job and internship portfolios help students to prepare for their career.
