Job & Career

Since Biomimetics is an interdisciplinary subject in which engineering and biological competences are systematically merged, this is directly reflected in the course of studies. As a prospective graduate you will thus receive a knowledge package which will allow you to creatively find solutions to subject-specific as well as inter-disciplinary questions in order to develop innovative systems, technical products and applications. In this implementation process, you will be active in inter-disciplinary research teams in both a coordinating as well as a leading capacity.

The wide-ranging fields of activity include among others:

  • Solar and Photovoltaics industry
  • Micro- / Nano- Solar technology, Photonics and Instrumentation
  • Bio-materials industry
  • Research into renewable energy sources
  • Solar / wind technology research and development 
  • Architecture / construction
  • Heating and air conditioning
  • Energy technology
  • Engineering offices
  • Logistics companies
  • Research institutions
  • Aerospace industry
  • Service providers and experts specialising  in biomimetics, energy management,  project / innovation management
