The English-taught Master's degree program in Biotechnology from Offenburg University of Applied Sciences provides you the qualification to participate in the solution development for crucial issues of our future. 


The focus of the Biotechnology program from Offenburg University of Applied Sciences is on bioeconomics, especially in the field of environment and nutrition. It is designed for three semesters of full-time study and awards the title of Master of Science.

The MBT program is organized jointly by Offenburg University of Applied Sciences and the University of Warmia and Mazury (UWM) in Olsztyn/Poland. It is the only internationally cooperative Master's program in biotechnology in the state of Baden-Württemberg and offers the opportunity to earn a double degree from the two partner universities. 

The university took 3rd place in Poland in the category of Good Health and Quality of Life. As many as 13 scientists from the University of Warmia and Mazury belong in their disciplines to the prestigious two percent of the best scientists in the world according to Stanford University. Two of those scientists teach students within the international program MBT.


Biotechnology is regarded a key technology of the 21st century. It represents not only the necessary transition from an oil-based to biobased industry and sustainable energy supply, but also groundbreaking advances in medicine and food security for a growing global population.

The international, English-taught Master's degree program in Biotechnology (MBT) prepares graduates for this growing market with detailed expertise in the field of bioeconomics, particularly environment and nutrition. 

Students work on case studies independently and familiarize themselves with the field of bioproduction, including important security measures and authority management. The resulting specialists will be fully aware of the future trends and opportunities of the highly innovative biotechnology industry, but also recognize potential conflict areas and ethical issues.

Additionally, the international orientation of the program provides students with valuable intercultural skills and other crucial qualifications in the distinctly multinational field of biotechnology.
