Chemical and Biotechnical Science

AP degree - 2½ years - 150 ECTS

1½-years of teaching and a 1-year internship and main project

The Chemical and Biotechnical Science programme is for people who would like to work in a practical, research or development laboratory. This AP programme is the international version of the Danish laborant programme (laboratory technology). The two lines have identical content and offer the same job opportunities, but the international line equips you with a global understanding. So, if you want to work in an international company or study abroad, you will get international and linguistic competencies by studying on the international line. 

This entire programme is taught in English.

Practical experience  and theoretical knowledge from a laboratory

The programme is versatile and offers a varied mix of laboratory work, theory, project work, lectures, study visits and thematic teaching. A part of the chemical and biotechnical technician’s work is done in cooperation with others, but you must also be able to work independently.
