Master of Science
The Master's programme in Biochemistry International at Heinrich Heine University builds on a previous successful bachelor's degree in biochemistry. The programme is research-oriented with a focus on the characterization and application of enzymes.
Admission is unrestricted, but requires a "proof of special suitability". Compulsory is a degree of a 4-year Bachelor's programme with good grades and sufficient language skills in either German or English. Successful applicants will have a good comprehension of biochemistry as well as organic and physical chemistry.
The programme may be started in April (summer term) or October (winter term). To apply use the application portal.
The programme is research-oriented. The focus lies on the characterisation of enzymes as well as their application in biotechnology. Deploying modern molecular biological, biochemical and biophysical methods the structure and function of enzymes are elucidated and their use in enzyme technology is explored and improved.
The Master's program "Biochemistry" leads to the vocational qualification Master of Science (MSc) in 2 semesters. In the first semester electoral modules are chosen. The second semester is planned for the master's thesis.
More details and information can be found on the homepage of the programme.
