Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
The following Bachelor’s degrees qualify students for admission to the Master of science in Engineering degree programme in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering if mathematical competences on a Bachelor level in extent and content equal to at least 20 ECTS in Calculus, Linear Algebra, Probability Theory and Statistics, equally distributed, can be documented.
NB! the programme only admits a limited number of students. Evaluation is made on the basis of the average mark (i.e. GPA) of the Bachelor’s degree at the time of application. Marks/grades obtained after the application deadline will not be included in the GPA.
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English / Danish / Norwegian / Swedish.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
If the documents mentioned above are not in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or English, they must be accompanied by translations into English.
Diplomas and transcripts must always be translated into English and certified by either your home institution or a certified translator.
If your university does not provide official course descriptions in English, your course descriptions may be translated by yourself, but the translations must always be certified by your home institution. Documents translated by a certified translator should always be certified.
You must take verified copies of the entry qualification documents along with you when you finally go to the university.
IELTS: Academic test result of at least 6.5 points equivalent of C1 level. 6.5/B2 level is no longer accepted
NB! Your language test results cannot be older than 2 years (incl. CAE, CPE).
When you sign up for an IELTS or TOEFL test, you must also ask the test institution to send your test results to AU. The university will use the results sent by the testing institution to validate your document. The Aarhus University TOEFL code is 8935 (select “Other department not listed”).
It is possible to apply for admission before you have taken your English language test and obtained the required result. Instead you must submit documentation that you have signed up for a test.
1. Diplomas (in addition to your diploma you must upload an official transcript of records with specific examination results). These documents must be officially certified by your home institution by stamp and signature.
2. Transcript of records (if you have not yet received your final diploma). These documents must be officially certified by your home institution by stamp and signature.
3. Official course descriptions in English briefly describing the contents of your specific BA courses or other information that will contribute to describing the contents of your Bachelor’s degree programme.
4. Official descriptions of relevant courses to be completed after the application deadline.
5. An official description of the marking scale used at your home university.
6. Documentation of your citizenship (e.g. copy of passport).
Developing and optimising chemical and biotechnological processes plays a key role in modern society. It is predicted that the industry of the future will be characterised by production that is environmentally correct and energy-efficient.
During the first year of the degree programme, learning is mainly based on lectures and theoretical exercises. The second year mainly involves project work, whereby students work closely with companies. A student hungry for more has the possibility of continuing as a PhD student. Here, the student adds three extra years to their studies, working more independently on solving concrete problems. This can also take the form of an industrial PhD.
As a graduate engineer in Chemistry and Biotechnology, you will be developing the processes of the future – processes that will ensure that chemical, biotechnological and environmental knowledge finds sustainable applications to benefit society as a whole.
The Aarhus University educates graduate engineers for the regional, national and international job markets. Graduates work in a wide range of fields and institutions.
The degree programme is monitored by a group consisting of members from chemical companies such as Aarhus Karlshamn, Cheminova, Dupont and Arla, all of which are interested in employing newly qualified graduate engineers in chemistry and biotechnology.
