No doubt - Chemistry offered by the Ulm University is a fascinating science – a progressive future would be unthinkable without it. It is used in research laboratories to develop new materials and substances which accompany us in daily life as seemingly invisible helpers. 


Chemical reactions are found both in the biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) world. The art of transferring knowledge derived from nature into research and development never ceases to inspire researchers the world over. Chemistry provides a richness of perspectives, professional variety and is an important component of the sustainable development of our social prosperity. Especially the production, conversion and storage of energy are fundamentally important chemical issues for current and future generations.

What is this course about?

Ulm University offers the Master’s programme in Chemistry in two variations. Right from the beginning of the programme you get to choose your focus. The specialisation in Materials comprises various modules around material sciences. The specialisation in Chemistry focusses more on the classical sub-disciplines of Chemistry and offers maximum flexibility. Students in the Chemistry Master’s programme acquire detailed knowledge in the following areas:

  • chemical research and scientific work methods,
  • topical challenges in the core and sub-disciplines of Chemistry,
  • scientific and occupation-qualifying competences in chemistry-related application areas.

Jobs and career opportunities

Career opportunities are vast with this degree. Industry, research institutes, universities, schools and civil service offer interesting perspectives. Chemical expertise is sought after in many other areas as well – the following list comprises only a small fraction thereof: all economic activities around the topics of energy, food, environment and water, automotive and aircraft engineering, the insurance and consulting sector and many more.

Programme Structure

  • The Master’s programme is a research-oriented programme. It aims to deepen and complement the scientific and methodological qualifications acquired in the bachelor’s programme. 
  • The goal of this education is to impart knowledge and skills that enable you to apply scientific methods to complex chemistry-related questions and thus qualify you for employment in research, science, development and application in industry, academia and research institutes. The Master’s degree is also a pre-requisite if you intend to do a doctorate.
