The Bachelor of Science programme Chemistry at TU Darmstadt is designed as a broad fundamental course of study. Here, the primary objective is to acquire fundamental theoretical and experimental knowledge and the corresponding skills. Apart from the subjects of General and Analytical Chemistry, the curriculum comprises modules from the six chemical areas of specialisation offered at the TU Darmstadt: Inorganic, Organic, Physical, and Technical Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Macromolecular Chemistry. This is supplemented by mandatory courses in the fields of Mathematics, Physics, Toxicology, and Chemicals Legislation.

As Chemistry is a predominantly practice-oriented science, a large part of the studies takes place directly in a lab where the students learn how to handle chemicals and equipment, or techniques in the area of chemical synthesis and analytics.

Apart from acquiring field-specific knowledge, the key objective at the Department of Chemistry is to enable students to think independently and act responsibly.

Information: The Department of Chemistry provides first-year students with three proposals for their personal degree course plan. They contain the selection of a major in as early as the first semester – either in Inorganic, Organic, or Physical Chemistry. It is strongly recommended to adhere to one of the proposals at least during the first three semesters. If you have any questions, please contact the department.

Please find detailed information on the programme in the module handbook.
