The Bachelor's program in Applied Chemistry, with its main fields of activity: materials chemistry, sustainable chemistry and technical chemistry, leads to a first professionally qualifying university degree, which enables students to start a professional career in the chemical industry and related sectors as well as in academia.

The degree program is therefore both practice-oriented and highly interdisciplinary. Students complete practical trainings in laboratory courses and continuously work on job-oriented problems, in which scope, complexity and research-oriented learning scenarios increase throughout the curriculum. In this way they develop competences in planning, practical processing and scientific evaluation of complex chemical-technical tasks and problems as well as the autonomous control of processes for the change of substances and materials in the various areas of their future occupational field of activity.

Further information on the Bachelor‘s program in Applied Chemistry is available in German: Angewandte Chemie (Bachelor)
