Your Bachelor in Biochemistry at TUM

As the 'chemistry of life,' biochemistry serves as the link between biology and chemistry. In modern biochemistry, bioinformatics also plays an increasingly significant role. Biochemists analyze the organization of cells and organisms at the molecular level, as well as biochemical reaction mechanisms such as intracellular substance transport, cell differentiation, signaling cascades, or cellular responses to stress, as well as the molecular causes of diseases. To do this, biochemists employ chemical, molecular biological, and physical methods.

Through the interdisciplinary curriculum of the program, biochemistry students gain insight into related fields in medicine and life sciences. The research internship also provides a first, well-founded glimpse into future research and professional practice. The academic content of the program is complemented by additional modules that teach soft skills and promote scientific methodological knowledge.

Biochemistry bachelor's graduates possess a solid foundational knowledge in the central areas of biochemistry and other relevant fields such as organic and physical chemistry. Additionally, the bachelor's program in biochemistry deepens and expands knowledge in physics, mathematics, and computer science.

Most biochemistry bachelor's graduates continue their studies in a consecutive master's program in biochemistry to deepen their subject knowledge, enhance their research capabilities, and explore new areas of knowledge.


The application deadlines for the Bachelor's program in Biochemistry are from May 15 to July 15 for the winter semester and from November 15 to January 15 of the following year for the summer semester.
