The AP degree programme in Chemical and Biotechnical Science is a 2½-year full-time Higher Educational programme which qualifies our graduates for key functions within a number of trades and industries. Typical areas of work include control laboratories and research and development laboratories within the manufacturing sector, and at universities and other research institutes.
Our graduates, the chemical and biotechnical analysts, are qualified for planning, managing and implementing analytical work and results within both chemical and biotechnical areas.
The programme is theory-based and job-oriented, i.e. it aims to qualify students to be able to solve practical problems with an analytical basis. Theory is constantly targeted towards practical application in the industry. A completed programme gives access to and credits for further studies in Denmark as well as internationally.
