Criteria for the determination of equivalence:


Admission to the master's degree programme may also be possible if a student has completed a bachelor's degree in a relevant related field. As part of the determination of equivalence, the following core areas of the completed bachelor's degree programme will be assessed:

  • 10 ECTS-Credits in the core area Mathematics/Physics
  • 20 ECTS-Credits in the core area General Chemistry/Inorganic Chemistry
  • 10 ECTS-Credits in the core area Analytical Chemistry
  • 20 ECTS-Credits in the core area Organic Chemistry
  • 20 ECTS-Credits in the core area Physical Chemistry
  • 15 ECTS-Credits in the core area Biochemistry/Macromolecular Chemistry/Theoretical Chemistry

In the event that equivalence has been established in principle but with certain qualifications missing for full equivalence, supplemental examinations may be required. These examinations must be completed during the master degree programme.

Recommended Course Sequence

The exemplary course sequence given below is recommended for full-time students beginning their study programme in the winter semester. The table shows one possible course sequence for the bachelor's programme and is not compulsory. Delays resulting from repeated examinations are not taken into account.

The standard duration of the study programme is 4 semesters or 120 ECTS-Credits, whereby according to the Universities Act of 2002, a workload of 1,500 (real) hours per academic year must be fulfilled, corresponding to 60 ECTS-Credits (one ECTS-Credit is equivalent to a workload of 25 hours).

Qualification Profile and Skills

The Master’s Programme Chemical Engineering is grouped among the natural science studies.

The Master’s Programme Chemical Engineering is aimed at vocational training in chemical engineering. The programme imparts the subject-specific competences and methods for scientific research as well as for responsible action as a chemical engineer. The master’s programme is the basis for starting a career as chemical engineer in research, technology, industry, as well as in environment and chemical engineering-relevant fields in authorities.

The Master’s Programme Chemical Engineering is the basis for a subject-related doctoral programme.

The Master’s Programme Chemical Engineering has been designed with a focus on current procedural research fields in close connection of theoretical training and experimental/practical competences. Graduates of the Master’s Programme Chemical Engineering have a comprehensive thematical education and at the same time a specialised or advanced knowledge in fields of their interest. Besides of acquiring advanced up-to-date knowledge in chemical engineering, the master’s programme also imparts interdisciplinary key competences and a sense of responsibility with regards to the benefits and risk of natural science research and applications.

Expected Learning Outcomes

in progress

Future Prospects: Occupational Profiles and Career Opportunities

The graduates of the study programme are able to carry out scientific research in chemical engineering independently and in a leading role, and to use these acquired competences in an interdisciplinary way to solve issues in process engineering.
