The Faculty's mission

Why Chemistry?

All matter is made of chemicals. Chemistry therefore has a central position within the natural sciences. In addition, we live in a scientific-technical civilization in which chemistry makes an important contribution to improving our quality of life, e.g. through the development of novel substances or active agents. The faculty is committed to a fundamental broad education in the field of chemistry and to the special development of its focal research areas. [more]

VIDEO SERIES "Considering this ..."


The video series "Considering this ..." aims at giving insights: what does our study programs offer? What are opportunities and challenges? How can you combine your studies and your job? What are your career perspectives? Teachers and students provide you with answers to these questions.
