About this course
Chemistry is the science in which the properties, the composition and the transformation of materials and compounds are researched. Through qualitative and quantitative analysis findings are obtained, which are used for a better understanding of the substances from the environment and for the production of new, non-naturally occurring substances.
The main areas of chemistry are:
- Inorganic Chemistry: It deals with all the elements (carbon with limitations) and their compounds.
- Organic Chemistry: This deals with the compounds of carbon with hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur. A separation between the territories inorganic and organic chemistry is not possible in the strict sense.
- Physical Chemistry: It deals mainly with thermodynamics, electrochemistry and kinetics, and relies on methods of mathematics and physics.
- Theoretical Chemistry: Here the processes involved in reactions of different substances are each described not only qualitatively but also quantitatively, where complex calculations are carried out using computers.
- Macromolecular Chemistry (Polymer Chemistry): This main area that deals with the synthesis of new plastics is concerned (materials science), is becoming increasingly important.
- Applied Chemistry: It makes chemical knowledge in many areas of human life needs available. In addition, there are numerous transitions z. B. to process engineering / chemical engineering, biochemistry, geochemistry, agricultural chemistry, pharmacy, food chemistry and Ecochemistry.
The bachelor chemistry gain specialized knowledge and practical skills. It provides an overview of the entire field and able to independently identify problems, edit and communicate in the context of the professional environment.
The training can not be aimed at a specialized activity, as also change in the future job requirements constantly and the chemical knowledge is in constant expansion. The bachelor program is to provide students with the basic skills to apply the scientific methods of the subject chemistry in theory and experiment. But the foundation is laid for the Bachelor's degree program, in which a specialist taxonomy is mediated. Students should acquire the ability to recognize and multidisciplinary contexts. The essential competencies in the fields of experimental skills and theoretical understanding of modern chemistry provides. Students also receive a sufficient general-scientific, physical and mathematical armor.
The education in bachelor degree program is ultimately designed so that students can move to other scientific fields of work or occupations.
The successful completion of the bachelor's degree, a first professionally qualifying statements will be achieved. Already at the end of the second academic year and in the third year, students can occupy elective modules to achieve job-skills qualifications when planning the profession directly after the Bachelor's degree. The majority of students, however, are planning a research-oriented activities after the subsequent master's degree or doctorate and therefore prefer academic education in the second and third year. The choices in the 4th and 6th semester students should motivate you to choose interdisciplinary and application-specific modules.
The university entrance is acquired by, among other things:
- the school in general education schools,
- the school to vocational high schools (with a second foreign language).
The general university authorized to study all subjects at the university.
Subject-specific higher education
The technical university is a higher education qualification, which entitles them to study in certain subjects or courses of study at universities
in contrast to the general university entrance includes the technical university (the qualification for high school), only one foreign language. the technical university is to generally by the audit:
- a two-year vocational high school ( vocational high school regulation ),
- an academy,
- some vocational schools,
- Professional colleges or
- a gifted test
