Chemistry (MSc)

Bitte beachte, dass dieser Studiengang nur in englischer Sprache angeboten wird.
What is the degree program about?

The English-language master's program in chemistry is a research-oriented course of study in which the latest developments in basic chemistry and applied research are presented. The program is modular and allows great freedom in the choice of course content. Starting with the core modules, where two out of four disciplines (inorganic, organic, physical chemistry and quantum and computational chemistry) can be chosen, to the choice of an elective module ranging from bioinspired chemistry to energy topics to catalysis, each student can set his/her personal educational focus by freely designing three elective modules (more chemistry courses or prefer some business studies or maybe a new language?). Your personal inclination and imagination are in demand when choosing the modules! The master's program is completed by a research module in a working group of your choice and the final master's thesis.

Admission requirements

Successful applicants must have completed a Bachelor’s degree from a recognised university with a strong theoretical and practical background in chemical sciences.
