Research-oriented Materials Chemistry
Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)


The degree programme provides comprehensive training in all core chemical subjects. Furthermore, students can select from a large pool of elective modules with reference to materials, which belong to disciplines like physics, engineering or building chemistry. The students are thus enabled to tread the path from the molecule to the material in all facets, i.e. synthesis, characterization and production.  The conception of this Bachelor’s degree programme incorporates departments from four different faculties of the BTU, Chemistry is thereby complementary to other areas related to materials.

The course of studies "Material Chemistry" thus follows an interdisciplinary approach. The students acquire joined-up knowledge and familiarise with other subjects, especially in the field of engineering.
