Introduction

The work of biologists overlaps that of pharmaceutical chemists, biochemists, veterinarians, agronomists, and other graduates in subjects closely related to biology, and biological research is conducted in a wide range of fields, such as molecular biology, biochemistry, immunobiology, microbiology, genetics, cell biology, morphology, taxonomy, animal and plant physiology, behavioral biology, ecology, neurobiology or neuronal foundations of behavior.

Admission Requirements

The minimum requirements for admission in M.sc.Biology at Technical University of Munich for all applicants (Domestic or International) are:

  • program specific academic requirment set by Technical University of Munich.
  • English Language OR any other language requirments as set by Technical University of Munich as pre-requiste for admission in M.sc.Biology.

More Information

Around 200 modules in the life sciences and 65 professors enable students to tailor their studies to their own interests. As regards content, the modules offered correlate to one of seven focus areas: biochemistry and cell biology, genetics, medical biology, microbiology, ecology, plant sciences, zoology/animal sciences. Lectures, seminars, exercise modules, internships, and excursions for students in advanced semesters build upon the qualifications obtained in previous studies (in a primarily life science-oriented degree program). These courses are largely research-oriented. Emphasis is placed on hands-on experience in small and very small groups, particularly as regards research internships within groups of scientists, where there is 1:1 supervision and the opportunity to make use of tools currently utilized in research. The program offers modules in zoology/animal sciences, such as animal neurophysiology, or biotechnology; modules in plant sciences, such as plant physiology, developmental genetics, stress resistance, molecular plant breeding, and biodiversity; aquatic and terrestrial ecology, such as research diving or restoration ecology; microbiology modules concerning, for example, extremophile microorganisms, food biotechnology, or ecological microbiology; medical biology modules concerning inter alia virology, immunology, oncology or, in the area of biochemistry and cell biology, modules, such as protein design, molecular biotechnology, and cell culture technology. The program concludes after 4 semesters (standard duration of the study) with a research-oriented thesis completed over a six-month period.
