Molecular Science (B.Sc.)
The bachelor’s degree program in Molecular Science is offered in German only.
What is the degree program about?
Molecular Science is an interdisciplinary, chemical-scientific field of study that, in addition to the focus on chemistry, also includes content from materials science and technology or medicine, pharmacy and biology. After basic training in the classical disciplines of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, theoretical chemistry and biochemistry, you can specialize in one of the fields of Molecular Life Science or Molecular Nano Science in the third year of study.
In Molecular Nano Science, you will be involved in the development of new, molecular materials for materials science and engineering. You will be introduced to technologically significant classes of materials, such as conducting organic compounds or inorganic and organic solar cells, by learning the fundamentals of physics and chemistry. The focus is on properties, targeted synthesis and characterization of molecular architectures as well as in-depth understanding and practical application of spectroscopic analysis methods.
In Molecular Life Science, the thematic focus is in the direction of pharmacy and molecular biology and should, among other things, also enable you to make a lateral entry into the field of mechanisms of action and drug design. For this purpose, you will learn basic principles from the fields of genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, medicinal chemistry, food chemistry and molecular plant physiology. An important aspect here is also the integration of modern, computer-assisted structure search and structure optimization methods.
