Bioprocess Technology

Bioprocess Technology

part-time

The unique characteristics of the living cell are what make the process technologies different from others. Bioprocess technology makes it possible to transfer biotechnological methods to technical applications in the industry. Procedures that are already established in the laboratory must be optimized so that they work well for industrial production on a large scale. In addition to process technology know-how, this also requires knowledge about biotechnology, biopharmaceutical technology and laboratory practice. Quality management and quality assurance provide important parameters.

The admission procedure consists of a written test and an interview with the admission committee.

  • Aim
    The aim is to ensure places are offered to those persons who complete the multi-level admission procedure with the best results. The tests are designed to assess the skills needed for an applicant's chosen profession.
  • Procedure
    The written admission test assesses the applicant's knowledge of natural sciences and technology. Applicants then undergo an admission interview on the same day to provide a first impression of their personal aptitude. The qualities interviewers are looking for include professional motivation, an understanding of the profession, performance, time management. Points are assigned to each section of the test.
  • Criteria
    The criteria for acceptance are based solely on performance. The geographical origin of the applicant has no influence on the admission decision. The admission requirements must be met in all cases. Applicants are evaluated according to the following weighting system:
    • Written admission test (60%)
    • Admission interview (40%)

The study places are awarded at the latest in mid-July based on this ranking. The process as a whole and all test and assessment results from the admission procedure are documented in a transparent and verifiable manner.

During the studies

Your education and research benefit from our close partnerships with well-known biotech companies as well as the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) and the Vienna Institute of Biotechnology (VIBT), who share the campus with us. The partnership enables you to take advantage of the BOKU's excellent infrastructure. In addition to the laboratories, this includes an industrial pilot plant with which it is possible in a preliminary stage to research production processes on a laboratory scale. Furthermore, numerous R&D projects in the degree program offer you the opportunity to work with cutting-edge applications and to make valuable contacts for your future career. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

Bioprocess technology makes it possible to transfer biotechnological methods to technical applications in the industry. Microorganisms, animal cells or other biological materials can be used in a variety of technical applications to produce individual products, to develop test kits or to plan production plants. A bio-industrial pilot plant at our campus provides us the unique opportunity of being able to develop biotechnological production processes on a laboratory scale and transfer them to the pilot scale in order to precisely research their scalability.

The simulation of the production processes on a pilot scale helps determine deviations in each process step and develop process parameters for the commercial evaluation of the production processes. The results benefit teaching, research and the industry. For example, we use the facility together with the multi-technology company 3M to evaluate the latest filtration systems and applications for the production of medicinal products.

The degree program focuses on process technology, biotechnology, biopharmaceutical technology and practical laboratory experience.

  • Process technology covers control technology and plant engineering as well as plant design. In biotechnology you will specialize in bioprocess technology, downstream processing including practical laboratory experience, industrial microbiology and waste management technologies.
  • Within the framework of biopharmaceutical technology you will acquire knowledge about pharmacology, toxicology, company hygiene, process analysis, quality control and validation.
  • Knowledge of patent law, project management and corporate management will round out your portfolio. You will apply the methods of scientific work within the framework of your master's thesis.
