Biology

Biology is the scientific study of growth, function, origin, and evolution of organisms and life and covers a great number of fields including ecology, ecosystems, genetics, anatomy, physiology, cells, botany, animals and plants. Many Bachelor in Biology programs are aimed at being pre-professional, such as pre-medicine, pre-dentistry, pre-ecology, or other scientific disciplines.

Through laboratory and coursework, students earning a Bachelor in Biology learn the skills necessary to become biologists or scientists. Some coursework for Bachelor in Biology programs may focus on human biology including physiology, genetics, and anatomy, while others may focus on ecology, such as conservation, environmental management, and biotechnology. With a Bachelor in Biology, graduates have the option of such jobs as laboratory and research work in the public or private sector, health departments, government, working alongside scientists, teaching, or continuing on to post graduate education.

If you are scientifically oriented and are considering a Bachelor in Biology, then take a look through the options below and take the next step towards your personal and professional goals!

No restricted admission. Start of studies The programme begins each winter semester. Applicants with foreign certificates please apply until 31 July via uni-assist e.V. Programme objectives

The programme objective is to acquire expertise in the field of water management and the capability to acquire further knowledge independently with the aid of scientific methods. A further objective is to master the varied demands of professional life in applied practice, research or teaching, and to apply the rules of engineering confidently in order to deal effectively with the frequently changing tasks that will arise later in the working world. Our water bodies are used for water supply, energy generation, irrigation, navigation, as discharge systems for purified effluents as well as for purposes of leisure and recreation. Even on a regional level, global water scarcity obliges us to manage the resource both in terms of quantity and quality. In areas of intense land use, technological, ecological and process-based demands emerge which have economic consequences and require a legal framework. An integrated approach from the viewpoints of ecological, technological, process engineering and structural aspects gives rise to new results and findings. Natural and technically optimised processes and procedures dominate the structural design and, in relation to the residues generated, bring about a closer interdependency with closed-cycle management....
