BSc Life Science & Technology

What do penicillin, beer, and bio-degradable plastic have in common? Not much at first sight, but on closer consideration, the thing that links these (and many more) applications is the living cell. This ‘smallest building block of life’ is the key element in the Life Science & Technology (LST) degree programme. The programme combines biology, chemistry, physics, maths and several other fields.

LST is a joint programme of Leiden University and Delft University of Technology. You will benefit from the knowledge and facilities of two universities and after completion of your studies you will receive one diploma on which both universities are listed.
