The four-semester Master study program offers in-depth scientific education with specific regard to main research topics in Chemistry, such as Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Building Chemistry, and Macromolecular Chemistry. A further specialization in "Materials and Interfaces", "Light and Matter" or "Molecular Sciences" is possible.
The consecutive Master study program is designed to enable students to directly change over to a chemistry-oriented occupational field or to begin the doctorate program in chemistry on the basis of a comprehensive scientific education. In particular, students are introduced to modern theoretical and experimental developments in the field of study in its entire breadth. They learn to develop strategies for solving complex issues and to act with scientific responsibility. Moreover, the offer of variable specialization enables the students to put together an individual educational profile in the course of the study program.
During the first semester, advanced theoretical and methodical skills in the core subjects and in two application-oriented fields of study are imparted. In these courses, perspectives for specialization in the respective subject are highlighted and the basis for academic development is provided. From the second semester onward, deepening of knowledge in compulsory optional modules takes place. In the fourth semester, the Master's thesis is written in the subject of specialization.
The spectrum of the elective course I is consistent with the classic subjects of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry. In addition to these subjects, one of the application-oriented subjects of analytical chemistry, construction and materials chemistry or macromolecular chemistry can be chosen as elective course II. Elective courses I and II must not be the same to prevent focusing too much on one subject. After all, the elective course III comprises the entire range of the above mentioned chemical and non-chemical subjects. The modules "Research project" must be consistent with the elective course I and/or II from 2nr or 3rd term.
1) Bachelor of Science in Chemistry or equivalent (with grade 2.5 or better)
2) If the above criteria are not met, there is the possibility to qualify on the basis of letters of recommendation and a discussion with academic experts.
3) Language Requirements:
- English as a native language or
- TOEFL (Code No. 8429) 533 (paper-based), 200 (computer-based), 72 (internet-based) or
- CAE level C or
- IELTS grade 6 or equivalent or
- English on level B2 of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages)
The current examination regulations is valid.
The language of instruction is English.
Lab courses are part of the elective subjects.
Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
