Life Science

Chemistry, Environmental Engineering and Biotechnology

At Aalborg University, we offer a wide range of study programmes within the field of Life Science comprising Biotechnology, Chemistry, and Environmental Engineering.

The common perspective in all these study programmes concerns the building blocks of life.

The Biotechnology programmes are interdisciplinary programmes working across the demarcations of Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Engineering. Biotechnology is about understanding and utilising the different building blocks of life. As a Biotechnology Engineer, you work with development and production based on microbial and enzymatic processes in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry. You can also work with biotechnological methods for analysis and production, or you can have a career in project management or teaching.

The Chemistry programmes provide you with insight into molecules and their mutual interaction, and you learn how to utilise knowledge about molecules in order to design and build new materials. As a Chemist or a Chemical Engineer, your career can be in the chemical industry, in the pharmaceutical industry, in the oil industry, or in the public sector. Your work tasks can involve development of new materials, optimisation of chemical production, or food inspection. In addition, you can work with teaching.

The Environmental Engineering programme allows you to work with environmental issues in relation to man-made systems such as cities, industries, and farming, or in relation to natural systems such as streams, lakes, and the sea. The interdisciplinarity of the programme allows you to combine the fields of chemistry, physics, biotechnology, and biology. As an Environmental Engineer, your career can be in the public sector where you can work with environmental inspection, restoration of nature, or handling of pollution cases. You can also choose a career in the industry, for instance in a consulting engineering company.
