The B.Sc. Chemistry programme at the TU Darmstadt is designed as a broad basic study programme. The aim here is first and foremost to acquire fundamental theoretical and experimental knowledge and the associated skills. The curriculum includes modules from general, analytical, inorganic, physical, organic, technical, macromolecular and theoretical chemistry as well as biochemistry, completed by courses from the fields of mathematics, physics, hazardous substances and methods.
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.
General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the Technical University of Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. Therefore it is recommended that students complete a Master's programme.
