The chemistry programs provide an in-depth classical chemistry education combining practical and theoretical work with a large selection of courses to choose from in particular in the master program.


In the core elective studies you will get an overview of modern topics in inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. Furthermore a module "presentation skills" is included.

Then it is up to you if you prefer to keep a more expanded view or a concentration on a subject of your choice. 

In the area of concentration and the elective studies you may either also prefer only classical chemistry modules but you may also choose modules for example in analytical chemistry, biochemistry or environmental chemistry. In the elective studies you may even choose non-chemistry-modules for example patent law, language courses or informatics. Please note that the tuition language of these module may be German only.

Practical training is done in the research projectsResearch projects are performed in the academic working groups of our institute - with permission of the examining board also in other groups outside our institute. In an experimental working group you will stay in the lab for several weeks, in the fields of physical chemistry you will maybe work more ore even exclusively at a computer. In the academic working groups you will have a direct access to the state-of-the-art of science in the specific field the group is working.

At the end of your study you will have an overall knowledge about modern chemical problems and a state-of-the-art-knowledge about some special aspects.
