Special features regarding teaching

Chemistry is taught in relation to the sub-disciplines and is integrated with related subjects (Biochemistry, Physics, GEO and Environmental Science). Through participation in research projects, which is strongly encouraged and supported, students learn the importance of knowledge and its application to scientific issues from the very outset of their degree programme. The CBT and MCCB programs allow first- and second-year students to participate in research projects in the Institute's research groups. Co-authorship of students on scientific publications is often possible.

Special features regarding the international orientation

The degree course, as well as the entire university, has a very strong international focus. The course is taught in English, and the majority of students come from abroad.

Special features regarding the equipment

The course is very well equipped and has all the facilities needed for the demanding research. The organisation of the university and the programme allows students to work with research apparatus and equipment under supervision at the very beginning of their studies, thus enabling students to experience the research-oriented applications of the contents of the laboratory courses beyond the course-related training.

Support for founders

Some professors have joint research projects with the chemical industry as well as experience with business start-ups. Detailed information will be provided to interested students upon request. Students have the opportunity to participate in a programme to develop a start-up company. The programme consists of events on entrepreneurship topics specifically for innovative start-ups and the development of one's own business idea as well as the preparation of a business plan.
