This course offers students the unique opportunity to study two growing areas of technology at the same time: biotechnology and environmetal technology.
Biotechnology and Environmental Technology is important in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries (including, for example, identification of gene-modified foods). Environmental technology covers important areas such as cleaning of water, air and earth as well as prevention of pollution in all fields.

The programme has the following core areas of emphasis:
- interaction with ‘living systems’ and their behaviour in response to external influences
- conversion of biotechnological processes into technical processes
- realisation of ideas and projects in practice

In-depth study:
- Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Process Engineering, Apparatus and Plant Construction
- Chemistry, Biochemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Biotechnology, Cell and Microbiology
- Languages, Business Economics, Project Management, Communication
- Environmental Technology
- Biotechnology

Inter-disciplinary skills:
In numerous practice classes and projects theory gained from lectures is put into practice. In addition to a practice-orientated, first-class technical education, Wels School of Engineering places great value on skills such as inter-disciplinary thinking, communication skills and management and leadership qualities.

Career opportunities

Examples of work in which graduates of this programme are immediately employable:
- the development and operation of components and plants in Bio-and Environmental Process Engineering
- planning and operation of biotechnological production in the pharmaceutical, farming and food industries
- planning and implementation of energy efficient and ecological energy systems
- the marketing and sale of environmentally friendly and/or biotechnological plant and systems
- activities in development, inspection and supervision organizations
An important part of the course is the compulsory internship/work placement. During the placement the student is looked after by both a university lecturer and a representative of the company.
