Angewandte Naturwissenschaften (Bachelor of Science)


The Bachelor’s degree program in Angewandte Naturwissenschaften conveys a broad basic knowledge of chemistry and physics over 7 semesters. Through this interdisciplinary approach it creates a skills profile that is sought after in both the academic and commercial fields.

The concept for this degree program arose from one of the focal research areas of the departments of chemistry and physics at the Institute for Integrated Natural Sciences of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. Both departments work on an interdisciplinary basis in the field of material properties and functional surfaces and are part of the Rhineland-Palatinate’s Metal - Ceramic - Plastic regional innovation cluster. The research topics addressed in this context relate to materials science and are characterized by the high-level combination of chemical and physical aspects. The concept of the degree program in Angewandter Naturwissenschaft is therefore oriented towards the requirements of the manufacturing industry with regard to skilled personnel with a background of interdisciplinary training.

In addition to a broad and expandable knowledge base in the natural sciences of chemistry and physics (see program content) the program also conveys ‘hands-on’ skills through various internships and practical courses. A broad and varied range of elective subjects allows students to set their own focus.

Courses on communication and presentation techniques, scientific English and the teamwork practiced during internships and practical courses also provide program participants with valuable skills for use in the subsequent professional careers.

The research internship and Bachelor dissertation at the end of the degree program can be completed either at the university or directly at a workplace or an external research facility in Germany or abroad.

Due to their broad basic knowledge in the field of natural sciences, degree program graduates are able to take on positions in industry as well-educated specialists and have the option of obtaining further qualifications through completing a Master’s degree program in the natural sciences.
