The students learn to analyze social problems related to chemistry and to develop concepts for their solution. In doing so, they take into account the scope of their actions in relation to social, scientific and ethical issues. In application-oriented learning scenarios, the necessary competencies are also deepened, which make it possible to develop new concepts, methods, connections and materials as well as prototypes and products on a laboratory, pilot plant or production scale, even in unfamiliar situations.
In addition, the curriculum offers a freely selectable module in which students deal with non-subject topics, strengthen their social commitment and sharpen their personality.
Joint seminars with doctoral students enable the faculty's current research topics to be linked. There is also the possibility of carrying out research projects in industry. The course prepares students for a subsequent doctorate as well as for independent activities in industry.
The course lasts 3 semesters in the standard period of study. Part-time studies (e.g. part-time) are generally possible. The faculty supports the development of an individual timetable. The Applied Chemistry course has an international focus and is open to international applicants. Teaching is project and competence-oriented. Study achievements made abroad are recognized for one's own studies on the basis of the skills acquired The teaching languages ??are German and English.
The students acquire specialist skills, particularly in the areas of modern chemical technologies, green chemistry and materials chemistry. Understanding the complex relationships within and the multi-layered external interactions in the field of applied chemistry enables graduates to analyze social problems and develop concepts for solving them.
The most important social challenges are currently urbanization, demographic change, climate / energy, health / nutrition, mobility and security. These challenges require the solution of fundamental scientific and especially chemical problems. The Applied Chemistry course as a whole thus contributes to the social commitment of the students. Numerous projects are processed within the curriculum that address small to medium-sized problems that are directly related to the challenges mentioned.
