In the first four semesters, you will learn the most important basics in physics and mathematics, in inorganic, organic, physical, analytical and technical chemistry, and you will acquire further general knowledge, including skills in the technical language English. From the 5th semester onwards, you can decide for yourself which in-depth modules you would like to take, for example "Hyphenated Methods in Analytical Chemistry", "Technical Catalytics" or "Microbiological Biochemical Lab Course". In this way, you will slowly be introduced to the research work of the individual institutes. You will write your bachelor thesis in the 6th semester: you will deal with an interesting research topic, you will inform yourself about the topic, do experiments in the laboratory (or on the PC) and then present your results to the other members of the institute.
Experimental lectures are an essential part of the program. The lectures take place in comparatively small groups, practical problems are solved in teams. Online offers support your individual learning. The proportion of practical lab courses is very high at around 50 percent. There is a very good supervisor:student ratio and there are no waiting periods for the basic lab courses. Especially in the first semesters, you will be individually supervised by professors, scientific and technical staff as well as students.
Please note that the language of the course is German. At TUBAF we offer various Master's degree programmes taught in English language.
