at the City University of Applied Sciences Bremen
Since 2003 Biomimetics has been taught at the City University of Applied Sciences Bremen. Biomimetic approaches are continously researched on and transferred to industrial applications (e.g. AirCoat, Shark Skin 2.0), have been defined (VDI Guideline 6220 Sheet 1) and are brought to a wide (e.g. via our seminars or our YouTube channel) as well as to the specialized public (e.g. our Biomimetic-Congresses). There is close cooperation with partners from industry, biomimetics networks, other research institutions and the Association of German Engineers (VDI e.V.).
The Biomimetics-Innovation-Centre (B-I-C) is the roof organization. Here you will find contacts for industrial cooperation, educational projects and research.
There are two option for studying biomimetics in Bremen:
1) In our bachelor degree programme (B. Sc.) called „International study course in biomimetics“ (ISB) or
2) our master degree programme (M. Sc.) „Biomimetics: Mobile Systems“.
Major language for both programmes is German.
There is also the opportunity to do a PhD.
The courses and research units are equipped with innovative laboratories and workshops (creative labs) where students receive qualified training.
At the moment 5 professors and a team of approx. 20 assistants work at the B-I-C and in the study programme.
