Chemistry - Bachelor of Science (BSc)

Chemistry is without a doubt a fascinating science – a progressive future would be unthinkable without it. It is used in research laboratories to develop new materials and substances which accompany us in daily life as seemingly invisible helpers. Chemical reactions are found both in the biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) world. The art of transferring knowledge derived from nature into research and development never ceases to inspire researchers the world over. Chemistry provides a richness of perspectives, professional variety and is an important component of the sustainable development of our social prosperity. Especially the production, conversion and storage of energy are fundamentally important chemical issues for current and future generations.

More about the course

Much of what seems self-evident to us today has only become possible because of long-standing chemical research and development over the past decades. The modern achievements in the areas of raw materials, computer engineering and microelectronics, but definitively also everything related to new materials, e.g. improved heat insulation, hydrogen and fuel cell technology, energy-saving LED lighting systems and the progress in medicine are certainly among the highlights.  So, is this as good as it gets?  On the contrary! The coming generations of chemists still have many tasks to face and the professional perspectives are as varied as attractive and also very well paid.  Challenges of our current times are, for example, the protection and preservation of the environment, the fight against diseases, the concerns about sufficient nutrition for the growing world population, securing energy supplies, the development of new materials and alternative raw material sources.  Chemistry will shape the future actively in all these areas and in many other ways.
