The degree program
The bachelor's program in Chemistry is designed to ensure, by way of well-founded, compact basic chemical training, that students acquire professional qualifications in the field of chemistry. Additionally, this degree program is intended to teach the theoretical and practical basics for a further scientifically oriented master’s degree program with a subsequent doctorate.
The basic training in Chemistry at the University of Siegen includes the following core subjects: Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. The secondary subjects of basic training in Chemistry are: Analytical Chemistry, Construction and Materials Chemistry and Macromolecular Chemistry.
Furthermore, the acquisition of key qualifications in the handling of chemical substances (law, safety, toxicology) and the acquisition of professional qualifications in the areas of communication, foreign languages and database administration are essential components of the degree program.
The first two semesters focus on general scientific basics of the subject of Chemistry as well as the basics of physics and mathematics. In this part of the degree program, students are intended to acquire solid basic knowledge according to the requirements of a degree program in natural sciences. In the two subsequent semesters, students are intended to learn to understand and discuss basic chemical phenomena and questions as well as solve chemical problems with scientific methods. The 5th and 6th semesters serve to expand on the subjects of chemistry. The possibilities of combining the compulsory elective subjects are almost unlimited and enable students to focus on specific subdisciplines of chemistry with research-oriented specializations. In the last third of the bachelor's program, students consequently acquire the key qualifications that ensure a successful transition to the research-oriented master’s degree program.
Generally, typical employers of graduates are companies in the chemical industry.
Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module handbooks/internship regulations
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
