Interdisciplinary programmes
Joint study projects of different departments of the TU Darmstadt

Looking over the edge of the Petri dish

Facts, facts, facts? What often comes first at university is often less important at the workplace. After all, if you want to be successful as a biologist working on social progress and solving complex problems, you need one quality above all: to be a team player in interaction with players from other fields and disciplines.

You can gain your first experience as an “expert” in the interdisciplinary programmes offered by the Department of Biology in cooperation with other departments across the TU Darmstadt. Here you meet students from different departments, disciplines or countries. You will learn what it means to work as a biologist in a group of scientists from different disciplines. You will get to know different working methods and problem-solving strategies.

Dare to look beyond the petri dish – it's worth it!
