Applied Chemistry

Anyone wishing to succeed as a chemist or chemical engineer must possess adequate expert knowledge. That is why, at the beginning of the application-oriented Applied Chemistry master's degree programme, we ask you to select a specialist area of study: biochemistry, chemistry, or technical chemistry.

By choosing a specialist area of study, you will be able to deepen your specialist knowledge in the scientific or engineering field of your choice in a goal-oriented manner. Alongside expert knowledge, methodical competences and the ability to work independently and scientifically are vital. You will primarily be taught these key elements by means of project papers. The master’s degree programme will therefore fully prepare you to perform tasks in the fields of product-related research and development or production. Graduating with a Master of Science degree will also open up the possibility of completing a doctorate. The admission requirement for the master’s degree programme is the completion of a bachelor’s degree programme in Applied Chemistry or training in a related field (e.g. chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, etc.).
