The master’s course in chemistry is part of the consecutive course in chemistry. It builds on the six-semester Bachelor's degree in chemistry at the University of Stuttgart or equivalent B.Sc. programs at other universities. In addition to in-depth training in the core subjects of chemistry, the primary goal is to prepare graduates for active research or a doctorate in chemistry.
There are currently four selectable research profiles in the chemistry master’s program, which reflect the current research focus in which the faculty's scientists are actively involved:
Sustainable Synthesis and Catalysis
Smart Materials and Functional Molecules
Biological Chemistry and Biotechnology
Theory and Simulation in Chemistry and Materials Sciences
Degree in a bachelor's degree program lasting at least six semesters (or an equivalent degree)
Degree in the respective course or a course with very similar content
Depending on the course, there may be additional requirements. The exact admission criteria can be found in the admission regulations
Admission with conditions
In the case of admission with conditions, you will be admitted, but you must catch up on certain examinations from the bachelor's degree before you register for the master's thesis. This can be the case, for example, if you completed your bachelor's degree at another university or a university of applied sciences and did not take seminars or modules there that you need for the master’s degree at the University of Stuttgart. The final decision as to whether your professional aptitude is recognized as sufficient is made by the admissions committee .
Graduated from a university of applied sciences
A degree from a university of applied sciences (formerly a university of applied sciences) or the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University basically entitles you to study for a master’s degree at a university, according to the State University Act.
Admission restriction (NC)
In master’s courses in which the number of study places is limited (Numerus Clausus (NC)), ranking lists are created for the allocation of study places based on the criteria that are a prerequisite for admission to the master’s course. The admission regulations for the relevant master’s degree program regulate further details.
Apart from the admission with conditions, there are other variants of admission depending on the subject:
Occupational fields for which graduates of the master’s degree in chemistry are particularly qualified:
Further qualification through a doctorate
Research and development in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry
Research and development in other industrial companies and medium-sized companies
as an expert and for quality assurance in authorities and administration
as an expert in associations
Collaboration in scientific publishing houses
in the field of economic, technical and scientific services
in the patent system
