Bachelor of Science - Undergraduate program
Career perspectives

Students who have completed the MCCB program will understand how the life of cells, organisms, and humans is organized at the chemical molecular level. This opens the door to graduate education (most often in biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, or organic chemistry) but also to a wide variety of career choices ranging from the strictly scientific (entry level industrial positions in the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or food industries) to education (elementary or high school), to regulatory affairs (analytical food testing laboratories, quality management, etc.) to legal counsel (patent attorney, licensing, etc.) to start-ups. The critical, goal-oriented, skills acquired from your in-depth analysis of chemical-biological problems may also be recognized by headhunters as transferable to non-scientific areas of employment. The mandatory MCCB summer internship, most often within the industrial research sector, is a professional growth experience that is invaluable for aiding students in their career making decision process.

The Career Services Center (CSC) as well as the Constructor Alumni Office help students in their career development. The CSC provides students with high-quality training and coaching in CV creation, cover letter formulation, interview preparation, effective presenting, business etiquette and employer research as well as in many other aspects, thus helping students identify and follow up rewarding careers after their time at Constructor University. Furthermore, the Alumni Office helps students establish a long-lasting and worldwide network which comes in handy when exploring job options in academia, industry, and elsewhere.

BSc Medicinal Chemistry and Chemical Biology | 2021
Nationality: Syrian

Studying here is truly a unique experience in essence. This is the only university in Germany where you can learn both inside and outside class.

You meet wonderful people outside class and you get to know more about their cultures, you live with them for 3 years and build friendships for life.

Inside the classroom you interact directly with your professors thanks to the small classroom sizes, which in my opinion leads to a better learning experience.
