Practical experience right from the start!

The high practical content characterises the chemistry degree programmes at TU Darmstadt. In addition to a lecture, all modules of the basic chemical education consist of practical exercises and laboratory practicals that depict the most important experimental methods of the respective subject.

The Bachelor's and Master's degree programmesChemistry” represent the diversity of the chemical disciplines Inorganic, Analytical, Physical, Organic, Macromolecular, Technical Chemistry and Biochemistry in the curriculum.

Biomolecular Engineering (BME)” is a joint offer of the Departments of Biology and Chemistry. The focus of these Bachelor's and Master's programmes is on methods of molecular biosciences, biochemistry and organic chemistry as well as the design of molecules and microorganisms.

We not only offer the classical education in chemistry and biomolecular engineering up to doctoral level, we also train teachers for grammar schools and vocational schools who teach chemistry in schools and vocational schools. Getting pupils interested in chemistry at an early age is a particular concern of ours.

The study programme “Chemistry for the Teaching Profession at Grammar Schools” combines chemical subject knowledge with subject didactics.

The teacher training programme for vocational schools at the TU Darmstadt consists of two interconnected programmes: first the Bachelor of Education in Chemical Engineering and then the Master of Education in Chemical Engineering. Methodology/didactics and practical phases complement the subject content of the teaching subjects.
