About Nanobiotechnology (Certificate programme) at Distance and Independent Studies Center, TU Kaiserslautern

Nanobiotechnology is a very recent and fascinating area of activity and research, which may be called the "Fundamental Technology of the 21st Century". Several potential applications can already be identified, for example in the field of medical diagnostics and therapeutics and the development of new materials. The distance learning program, unique in Germany and offered by the DISC since 2004, caters to the highly interdisciplinary nature of nanobiotechnology.

The 12 month certificate program is aimed at people, who have already obtained a university or university of applied science (Fachhochschule) qualification in a natural science or engineering or medical subject.

The course is held entirely in English.

For the enrolment to the English-language certificate distance education program "Nanobiotechnology" a sufficient proof of English proficiency is necessary.

Upon successful completion of this distance study program the graduates have acquired skills that enable them to strongly improve products and processes in the organizations in which they operate. Thus the study program makes a contribution to the high demand for skilled workers in the field of nanobiotechnology.

The two on-campus weekends contribute to the acquisition of practical skills. This is done in the context of lab work about different characterization procedures in nanotechnology and screening methods in biology.

An important secondary objective of the distance study program is learning of working in an international environment.
