Perfect skills set for today's chemical industry
Do you see waste recycling and reuse as important issues? Maybe you're interested in developing new active agents in the pharmaceutical industry? The Applied Chemistry programme is aligned with all today’s requirements of the chemical industry. An in-depth knowledge of chemistry is still essential, but employers also expect expertise in process analysis and process management due to the wider application of networked IT systems. Therefore, our curriculum places a strong emphasis on chemometrics – the application of statistical methods in the planning, development and selection of chemical processes and experiments – and the related IT-supported analysis of large volumes of data (big data analysis).
In addition, the innovative programme skilfully combines this with comprehensive training in chemistry as well as groundbreaking topics such as the use of renewable raw materials, and waste recycling and reuse. By linking chemistry subjects with the study of computer-based methods, students acquire the competencies for which industry demand will become stronger and stronger.
