Special features regarding teaching"Technical Biology": a unique bridging, natural and technical sciences closely linked (biology, physics, chemistry, engineering, systems sciences, bioprocess engineering); focused on current issues; strong networking internationally, well-known in companies and research; high practical relevance: best career prospects, wide range of professions; 60-70 students/year: good supervision for independent, critical scientists; focus: Biomaterials & nanobiotechnology; pharmaceutical & industrial biotechnology, biological systems.
Special features regarding the international orientationUsing many examples from global specialist literature, students are prepared for developing innovative solutions that are internationally formative and meet global challenges over the long run. Many intensive partnerships with European and non-European institutions and other institutions from the realms of science, economics, culture and politics have resulted in a high number of foreign projects (often final theses) and study visits abroad (ERASMUS/DAAD, various programmes, individual). Often on site: international guest researchers and students.
Special features regarding research activitiesTechnical Biology: Its interdisciplinary research projects benefit from the close proximity to other university institutes in the natural sciences and engineering. The campus is also home to the high-performance computer centre, Max Planck Institutes, Fraunhofer Institutes, e.g. for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology and for Production Technology, Hahn-Schickard/Microsystems Technology. Biomedical Systems, Digitalisation/KI in the Cyber Valley, Intelligent (Bio-/Hybrid-) Systems and Materials, sustainably produced, are focal points in university and faculty, for a sustainable society.
Other special featuresAs a highly sought-after degree course with entrance restrictions (60 places/year) and a very high proportion of laboratory courses with intensive small group support, the average grades for the higher education entrance qualification are usually in the top segment of the degree courses at the Universität Stuttgart. Thanks to the excellent career prospects, future-oriented teaching and research topics and constructive, friendly atmosphere, most graduates would study "Technical Biology" again.
