With more than a million scientifically described species, insects form the largest group of organisms on earth. As an emerging interdisciplinary research area, insect biotechnology explores insects as well as insect-associated micro- and macroorganisms as newly emerging bioresources for medicine, plant protection, pharmacy, industrial food and biotechnology. During your studies you will work intensively on the systematics and ecology of insects, acquire specific scientific and technical knowledge and learn about various methodical research approaches in order to investigate insects and their associated organisms as a new resource for food and luxury food, enzymes and bioactive natural products and finally to refine fully-developed products. The study programme stands out with its strong emphasis on research and practical relevance and as well as with a high level of interdisciplinary approaches and projects.
