Chemistry, B.Sc.

The Chemistry bachelor’s program provides students with a broad basic education in experimental and theoretical chemistry, mathematics, physics as well as other chemical and non-chemical fields. In addition to compulsory modules covering all fields of chemistry, compulsory elective modules provide students with the opportunity to discover their own interests or begin pursuing a specialization.

Biological Chemistry, M.Sc.

Our master’s in Biological Chemistry is targeted towards students with a bachelor’s in chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, or another area of life sciences, who are interested in examining biological issues from the perspective of chemistry. During their studies, students learn techniques and methods from chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, and bioanalytics. Particular focus is placed on ensuring students acquire practical skills and the ability to understand and apply a wide range of methods. Compulsory elective courses comprise a significant number of credit points allowing students to create their own area of focus.

Chemical Engineering, B.Sc.

In the Chemical Engineering bachelor’s program, students are taught a combination of chemistry, engineering, and math and how these interrelate. They also gain an introduction to methods used for chemical and process engineering investigations. A broad spectrum of fundamentals is used to reflect the program's character as an interface between the research laboratory and pilot plant/production.

Chemical Engineering, M.Sc.

The master’s in Chemical Engineering builds on the bachelor’s program and further explores the experimental and theoretical aspects of issues related to chemical engineering. It also addresses concrete questions from the field. An internship and the opportunity to create a specialization through compulsory elective and elective modules complement this study program.

Polymer Science, M.Sc.

The Institute of Chemistry is part of the joint international master’s program in Polymer Science. This English-language program is targeted towards students in the natural and engineering sciences who want to further their knowledge of polymers, i.e. macromolecular substances which play a key role in all areas of life as synthetics, active agents, and materials. The Polymer Science master’s program has a strong research focus and is jointly offered by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, the University of Potsdam, and Technische Universität Berlin.
