TUM Campus Straubing für Biotechnologie und Nachhaltigkeit
The development of sustainable technologies on the one hand and their economic implementation on the other – these are the two major topics that the TUM Campus Straubing brings together as the so-called “Integrative Research Center” of the Technical University of Munich. This requires scientifically and technically trained specialists, chemists, biotechnologists and engineers who also have a broad understanding of the economic and social interrelationships, or economists who understand the language of the technicians.
Based on this approach, research and teaching capacities in Straubing are being systematically expanded. The academic training at the TUM Campus Straubing takes place within the framework of the study courses Bioeconomics (Bachelor), Chemical Biotechnology (Bachelor), Renewable Resources (Bachelor and Master), Technology and Management Oriented Business Administration (TUM-BWL, Bachelor), Biomass Technology (Master) as well as Bachelor’s and Master’s theses and doctorates.
Building on the Bachelor’s programme in Chemical Biotechnology, the consecutive Master’s programme in Chemical Biotechnology is planned for the coming summer semester 2020, which will be offered entirely in English. This will make the courses offered at the TUM Campus Straubing interesting for international students as well. In addition, the new courses Technology of Biogenic Raw Materials and Biogenic Materials are in preparation for the winter semester 2020/21.
