SEMESTER OVERVIEW – See how the semesters of your master studies will be arranged



CURRICULUM – What kind of courses will you be taught?


Basic Module „Synthesis“: Modern methods of inorganic and organic synthetic chemistry are taught and practically applied in customized lab courses.

Basic Module “Catalysis”:  This module covers aspects of modern catalysis ranging from catalyst design via mechanistic studies to new fields of catalysis including photocatalysis in both theory and practice.

Basic Module “Techniques”:  Structure elucidation and computational chemistry are the central aspects of this module, which is completed by preparing an individual research proposal.

Advanced Module “Techniques”:  In small-group lab courses a variety of structure elucidation methods are applied to identify unknown compounds and reactive intermediates. In addition, a computational chemistry tutorial allows you to investigate reaction mechanism by means of modern theoretical methods.

External (International) Module “Research”:  In this customized research stay of about 2 months of duration, practical research experience is acquired in an international context.

Concluding Module:  A scientific excursion and a methods course in the scientific sub-discipline of the Master’s thesis belong to this module.

Master’s Thesis Module:  In the Master’s thesis, a question from chemistry or a related scientific discipline will be answered for the most part independently and by using the scientific methods learned before.
