Do you want to use a microscope to study cells, but also understand how the microscope itself works? Do you want to design and synthesize molecules that can target specific molecules, cells or organs? What chemical reactions happen in the body when taking medication? Are you looking for a diversity in courses and a multidisciplinary approach to scientific questions?

In this degree programme in Life Science and Technology (LST) you will learn how to find answers to questions like these. This degree programme combines elements from a variety of disciplines, including chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics/computing sciences and pharmacology. You will learn how to use this knowledge so you can look at problems from different scientific angles.

Our lecturers study the intricate details of living organisms, each with their own perspective. If we want to understand signaling through our nervous system, we must understand electricity and charge differences across biological membranes. If we want to make more effective drugs, we have to understand the chemistry involved in creating drugs – and what happens to those drugs in the body.

These are just a few examples of the things we explore. By the time you start this programme, numerous other new research projects will undoubtedly have started up. You're bound to find something that arouses your interest.
