The degree program
The bachelor's degree program chemistry is to ensure by way of well-founded, compact chemical basic training that the students acquire qualification for a profession in the area of chemistry. Additionally, the theoretical and practical elements and principles for a further natural-science-oriented master's degree program with subsequent postgraduate studies, are to be taught in the scope of this course.
The chemical basic education at the University Siegen includes the following main or majors: Inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.
The secondary subjects of the chemical basic training are: Analytical chemistry, building and materials chemistry and macromolecular chemistry.
Furthermore, the acquisition of key qualifications in handling chemical substances (law, safety, toxicology) and acquisition of qualifications in the area of communication, foreign languages and database management for a profession are essential components of the degree program.
The first two semesters focus on general naturals-sciences elements and principles of the subject of chemistry and the elements and principles of physics and mathematics. In this part of the studies, the students are to acquire stable basic knowledge according to the requirements to a natural-sciences degree program In the two subsequent semesters, the students are to learn to understand general chemical phenomena and questions and to discuss them, as well as to solve chemical problems with scientific methods. The fifth and sixth semesters are used to reinforce the chemical subjects. The possibility of combining required elective modules are barley limited and enable students to focus specifically in particular disciplines of chemistry with research-optimised focuses. In the last third of the bachelor's degree program, students are to acquire the key qualifications that ensure successful transfer to the research-oriented master's degree program.
Generally, typical employers of graduates are companies of the chemical industry.
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.
