German universities offer a broad range Natural Science and Interdisciplinary degree programmes. And more and more interdisciplinary subjects are being added every day. The ability to collaborate in teams is an important character trait for natural scientists. Natural sciences and interdisciplinary degree programs offer excellent career prospects to international students in Germany given the fact that academia, research institutes and the industry often collaborate to ensure continuous development for society.
Majority of the programs in Master degree are offered in English medium at most universities be it a specialisation master or an interdisciplinary master programs which require students to collaborate with other students from different academic background. New multidisciplinary research fields have become prevalent in recent years. This has resulted in a new generation of corresponding degree programmes such as Biochemistry, Molecular Life Sciences, Bioinformatics and Genome Research, Biomathematics, Environmental Chemistry, Nanosciences, Geoinformatics and so on and so forth.
Natural scientists, mathematicians and computer scientists have good chances in the labour market, Although the chances at finding jobs vary depending on the subjects the graduates studied, there is a growing demand in the entire technological field in Germany, the reason being that companies are struggling with an increasing lack of qualified experts in these disciplines. German authorities have launched a new campaign (“MINT-Initiative”) to get young people interested in enrolling in “STEM” degree programmes: science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
