Nanobiotechnology is a very recent and fascinating area of activity and research, which may be called the "Fundamental Technology of the 21st Century". Several potential applications can already be identified, for example in the field of medical diagnostics and therapeutics and the development of new materials. The distance learning program, unique in Germany and offered by the DISC since 2004, caters to the highly interdisciplinary nature of nanobiotechnology.

A weekly commitment of around 10-18 hours is required to study the material.

Program content

The distance learning program is made up of 11 topics, which include characterization techniques, chemical and physical synthesis of nanoparticles, processing coatings, ceramics and composites, basics of molecular biology, genetics, screening methods in biology, chip technology, nanotechnologically modified biomaterials, nanomotors, and nanoparticles for diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

Target group

The 12 month certificate program is aimed at people, who have already obtained a university or university of applied science (Fachhochschule) qualification in a natural science or engineering or medical subject.

The course is held entirely in English - therefore good English language skills are a necessity.

For the enrolment to the English-language certificate distance education program "Nanobiotechnology" a sufficient proof of English proficiency is necessary. Additional information about the application process can be found at


The study fees for the distance learning program "Nanobiotechnology" are EUR 820 per semester, plus the registration fee for the standard period of study. You will find further information at our Website (See Button "Webseite des Studiengangs").
