Engineering degree in Biotechnology

Program of study

The biotechnology study program at ESBS lasts three years. It is run by the universities of Basel, Strasbourg and Freiburg. Students from France, Switzerland or Germany receive intensive, trilingual interdisciplinary education in the field of biotechnology.

Most lof the courses are held in Strasbourg, but some (particularly practicals) take place in Basel and Freiburg. Courses and examinations are in French, German or English.  

Courses are regularly updated to adapt to recent developments in basic and applied research in biotechnology.   

The ESBS study program includes a wide variety of disciplines, from molecular biology, immunology, biophysics and process engineering to economics, language-learning, molecular modelling and bioinformatics.

The program ends with an eight-month work placement, for which the students are free to choose the geographical location and sector of activity: industry, private or academic institution.
