They invite you to take a look at their international Bachelor and Master programmes. These courses of study are offered by our eight well equipped teaching chairs which provide excellent tuition in Chemical and Bioengineering. You also have the opportunity to undertake cutting edge research in engineering.
Chemical and Bioengineering offered at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Erlangen Campus) is the engineering discipline which deals with the conversion of substances through chemical, physical and biological processes. The corresponding industry represents a significant economical factor: approximately 40% of the industrial turnover of Germany originates in processing industries and 15% of the entire world production can be attributed to the chemical industry. Through continuing optimization of existing processes and the application of new processes chemical and bioengineers work to improve product characteristics and to reduce the number and quantity of unwanted by-products and waste. As the link person between chemistry and plant construction one of the main tasks of chemical and bioengineers is the implementation on a production scale of processes for material conversion developed on the laboratory scale, often by chemists and biologists. For this purpose they need knowledge in the areas of chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and the engineering sciences. Thanks to their broadly based education, chemical and bioengineers are represented not only in the chemical industry but in many other important associated industries.
The spectrum ranges from the oil industry through the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, the food processing and beverages industries and plant construction to the automotive industry, energy engineering and the environmental protection sector. Chemical and bioengineers undertake a wide variety of highly responsible jobs in the fields of research and development; production; plant design, construction and operation; marketing; customer service and management. They are employed in major industrial corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises and state authorisation and monitoring organisations.

For the master's program CBI there are some requirements:
the qualification for the Master's degree program is demonstrated by the completion of a degree in chemistry and bioengineering with a degree above average (2.5), or if at least 4 of the core subjects are stored with the mean of the module grades 3.0 or better. Applicants with a degree that is not fully equivalent or / and with a final grade of less than 2.5 can only be admitted to the Master's degree program on the basis of a passed oral entrance examination. In addition, proof of mastery of the German and English language must be submitted at level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference.
