Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences
The Faculty of Applied Natural Sciences currently offers undergraduate programs – Bachelor of Science, B. Sc. – in Technical Chemistry and in Pharmaceutical Chemistry as well as graduate programs - Master of Science, M. Sc. - in Applied Chemistry and in Drug Discovery and Development (starts in winter term 2016/17):
- Technical Chemistry (Bachelor of Science): The objective of the faculty is to provide the chemical industry with qualified technical chemists who are able to turn lab chemistry into efficient, sustainable and environmentally compatible chemical processes by applying state of the art techniques.
- Pharmaceutical Chemistry (Bachelor of Science): The faculty trains pharmaceutical chemists with a strong focus on the processes of drug discovery and development. Graduates are skilled to work in various areas of the pharmaceutical value chain.
- Applied Chemistry (Master of Science): If you want to excel in chemistry, you need more than the required know-how. You have to be able to trust your personal and methodological competence along with the ability to focus on projects and processes.
The faculty of applied natural sciences is located in the CHEMPARK in Leverkusen, which is one of the largest chemical parks in Europe. Global players from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, such as Bayer and LANXESS, are located there. Thanks to this proximity, our students are immersed in a professional environment right from the beginning and usually gain an insight into the work of these companies through various projects.
