The world around us is changing at breathtaking speed. That confronts us with increasingly complex tasks. Chemical and bioengineering is a key discipline for mastering the major challenges in the areas of energy, nutrition, medicine, mobility and the environment. Chemical and bio-engineers are concerned with three questions :

  1. How do I get a certain chemical, physical or biological process to take place? This is science.
  2. With which devices, apparatus or systems can I do this? This is engineering.
  3. How can I use my answers to preserve and improve life and protect the environment? That's the motivation.



The Bachelor's degree program in chemical and bioengineering (formerly process engineering ) has been rebuilt in its current form and offers students one of the most modern and high-quality training opportunities in this area. The bachelor's degree program is characterized by a consistent combination of method orientation and practical relevance. Method orientation means that in basic subjects you not only learn equations and proofs, but above all to work out the equations yourself and apply them to engineering questions. The practical relevance comes from research-related internships in the laboratory and technical center and modern computer internships with programming exercises


First and foremost, chemical and bioengineering is a degree in engineering . Therefore, the basics in the technical and natural sciences are laid in the first semesters in order to create a solid foundation for further training.

In semesters 1 and 2, the course schedule therefore shows introductory courses in the natural sciences (chemistry, biotechnology and physics) and primarily basic lectures in mathematics, mechanics and engineering.


From the 3rd semester onwards, we will introduce you to programming in smaller groups and show you how to apply what you have learned in internships.

Also from the 3rd semester onwards, a natural science specialization (biology or chemistry or materials) is chosen to motivate you to deal with your personal career goals at an early stage. In this specialization subject, natural science lectures are heard over 4 semesters.

Semesters 5 and 6 are mainly used to teach the fundamentals of process engineering and to continue your scientific specialization, so that you are able to work on and solve the technical issues of the bachelor thesis with the methods you have learned. 



At the University of Stuttgart you can study the master’s degree in process engineering. After completing their studies, our graduates usually get a secure job quickly. From the programming and modeling of biological processes to the design and commissioning of process engineering systems - you decide where the journey is going. Common sectors are the pharmaceutical industry, food industry or environmental technology.
