Life Science and Technology

University of Groningen

Bachelor Undergraduate Groningen

Course description

Qualification Bachelor of Science
Field of study Health care, social services and care services
Course summary Can we generate new organs from cells? How do you design an artificial heart valve? How do biological molecules such as proteins and DNA work?
Course description In this degree programme in Life Science and Technology you will learn how to find answers to questions like these. This degree programme combines elements from a variety of disciplines, including biology, pharmacy, physics, chemistry and engineering. You will learn how to use this knowledge to create medical applications that make people better or improve their quality of life. For example, we will develop prostheses that can assume bodily functions, or a blood clotting test to make open-heart surgery safer. We will also investigate whether working in shifts is really as unhealthy as we think, which matter in the brain is affected and how biomolecules interact. To this end, Life Science and Technology uses knowledge from various subject fields, such as biology, pharmacy, physics, chemistry and engineering. Life Science and Technology is a hugely varied field of study, so you can specialize in the area that appeals to you the most. You can choose between Behaviour & Neurosciences, Molecular Life Sciences, Biomedical Sciences and Biomedical Technology.
