Nutrition, clothing, health, cosmetics and hygiene, materials and building materials - chemistry is constantly developing new products for everyday life and researching new processes for their manufacture. The master’s degree in chemistry provides in-depth knowledge in the field of inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. The extensive elective options in the advanced phase make it possible to specialize, for example, focusing on nanosciences, natural substances, energy, cell, and biochemistry, or materials science. The research-oriented course is rounded off by many internships that provide insights into the current research areas. A stay abroad is also possible during the master’s degree.

Completion of the master’s degree qualifies graduates for doctoral studies or for direct entry into professional life. A doctorate is expected, especially in large companies. Chemists work at universities and other scientific institutes in research and development, e.g. in the fields of medicine, natural sciences, or the environment.
Further career options are companies in the chemical, pharmaceutical, or plastics processing industry, mining, the metal processing industry, paper, and pulp manufacturers, or the foodstuffs industry. Areas of activity also open up in management consultancies or environmental agencies, in water management, or at customs. In addition, chemists can work for associations in the chemical industry or in journalism.
