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.

Schedule and organization:
The standard course duration for this part-time study, including examination time, is 12 months. It is also possible to take a break during the course and then return to complete it. The lectures and exercises are provided in the form of written study materias, which were developed specifically for distance learning. A weekly commitment of around 10-18 hours is required to study the material.
On campus events:
Two on campus events are held for all participants in the "Nanobiotechnology" distance learning program. These events always take place on the weekend. Their goal is to reinforce the course contents within the scope of group work and workshops, discuss questions regarding the study material and debate the practical implementation of the program content. Written examinations are also a part of these on campus weekends. In certain circumstances and based on a written application, students who are unable to attend these events have the option of taking the examinations at a Goethe Institute or a German embassy.
Assignments have to be solved and examinations taken over the course of the study program. Once all assignments and examinations have been completed, the program is concluded with a graded certificate from the University of Kaiserslautern.
