The duration of the programme is five semesters. The first 1½-year is spent at the academy. The last year consists in practical and theoretical work in a company. At the academy you will spend about half the time in the laboratories.
Teaching is diversified and offers an alternating mix of theory, laboratory work, project work, lectures, study visits and theme teaching. Theoretical teaching is team-based whereas laboratory work is performed both individually and in small groups. Both the teaching and the examination forms are primarily project organised, reflecting the work form you will encounter in your future job as a chemical and biotechnical analyst.
Teaching is mainly theme-orientated. The themes include water, environment, foodstuffs, chemical synthesis, fermentation, biotechnology and chemical technology. The programme consists of compulsory subjects (67 %) and an optional part (Specialisation -33 %). You will follow a series of different subjects: microbiology, biotechnology, apparatus technique, laboratory technique, analysis methods and chemistry. The specialisation consists of optional subjects, an internship and a main project.
The aim of the programme is to qualify the students to plan and carry out tasks of a technical/vocational nature in the laboratory area in connection with production, development, consultancy and control in the technical laboratories of companies in both the private and public sector.
Chemical and Biotechnical Analysts are sought after by the foodstuffs industry, environmental companies, for product quality assurance, by the medical industry, for research at universities and for development projects in private companies.
As a chemical and biotechnical analyst you will be able to work with a variety of tasks. For example within:
Food industry including breweries, dairies and abattoirs
Textile, paint and plastics industry
