A Master’s
in just one year

Establishing rapid and efficient analysis is both a great challenge and vital for industry. We will set you on the right path and give you the skills you need.

We focus on the various analytical methods and work with you to establish which methods are best suited to specific tasks. We don’t just take measurements, we also ask questions and use the answers to develop the best solutions. If you want your Master’s to be a success, you need to enjoy laboratory work – after all, you will be spending considerable time in the lab.

As well as studying analytical methods, you will learn about the key legal requirements that play a major role in the development, registration, production, and distribution of medicinal products. We will also spend plenty of time on quality assurance – precision is key for analytical methods, requiring a keen awareness of quality. Fascinating lectures will also provide insights into the world of proteins, nucleic acids, and polysaccharides and their importance in physiological processes.

We offer practical teaching by lecturers who have professional experience in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and know the needs of the market. This Master’s study program has a strong focus on application, and you will spend a great deal of time in our state-of-the-art laboratories. The program has an international feel from the outset and all content is taught in English, providing you with yet another advantage.

Our personal learning atmosphere, with small study groups and individual supervision by our experienced lecturers, will prove extremely beneficial. The program is structured to accommodate your needs. The first semester will be spent attending lectures and applying your specialist knowledge in the laboratory. In the second semester, you will concentrate solely on your Master’s thesis. If you wish, you can also write your thesis abroad – we have contacts around the world and will be happy to help.


Working toward Tomorrow

Having analyzed molecules and examined biological processes, graduates of our Master’s study program have a range of potential careers. Your newly acquired ability to understand the entire analytical process will make you a sought-after expert in many fields – for example with companies in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, biotech companies, public authorities, analysis and research institutes, and manufacturers of analytical devices. Potential roles include:

  • Research assistant/head of research at a private company (after completing a doctorate)
  • Product and sales expert for analytical devices
  • Project manager
  • Quality control manager at a private company
  • Researcher of fundamental science at a public institute
  • Member of staff/director at a regulatory authority

In numerous practical phases in the laboratory, you will work independently on various projects and gain experience of working with modern analytical devices. The study program is rounded off by case studies and excursions to companies in the pharmaceutical and bioanalysis industry with integrated workshops. This helps you to find not only a suitable topic but also potential corporate partners for your final Master’s thesis.

Are you thinking of continuing your academic career and pursuing a doctorate? Get in touch! While we do not have the right to confer doctorates, we work with numerous partner universities in Germany and abroad to help students earn their doctorate. A large proportion of our graduates go on to doctorates at German and international universities. Your studies will open up potential careers in business, teaching, and research.
