The RWTH Aachen University offers a bachelor program in Biotechnology and Molecular Biotechnology as an interdisciplinary course at the interface between biology, chemistry, bioinformatics and process engineering. The standard duration of the bachelor's degree program is three years.

Within this bachelor program the institute offers the lectures "Fundamentals of Biotechnology" including the corresponding exercise in the winter semester, "Production and Omics Technologies" in the summer semester and "Enzyme Technology" at the winter semester. In the fifth semester the "Interdisciplinary Block Internship Biotechnology/Bio-process Engineering" takes place, which is carried out together with the Institute of Biochemical Engineering. At this internship also process engineers can participate, thereby enhancing the exchange between students of different faculties. The seminar "Selected Topics in Biotechnology" can be chosen by the students as "Seminar in Selected Direction". Bachelor theses can of course also be carried out at the Institute.
