Chemistry - The Program

Handbook valid until Batch 2019/Class of 2022! ➤ NEW PROGRAM: CHEMISTRY AND BIOTECHNOLOGY (CBT) // BSc

Chemistry is the scientific discipline involved with elements and compounds composed of atoms, molecules and ions, and studies their composition, structure, behavior, and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other substances. Biotechnology is the application of biology to the solution of real-life challenges, where an element of profit is a prerequisite. The two disciplines are connected by their molecular approach and by their vast commercial importance.

Program

At Jacobs University, we equip our Chemistry students with the knowledge, research techniques, and the problem-solving skills necessary for a career in chemistry and/or biotechnology, and for further studies at the Master or PhD level. The transdisciplinary Chemistry study program offers chemistry modules that include organic, inorganic, analytical, and physical chemistry; students are also taught the relevant aspects of mathematics, engineering, and industrial practice. The focus of biotechnology in this study program is to learn how industry can take advantage of biocatalysts and biomolecules in order to contribute to a more sustainable future.

Jacobs University offers study programs that comply with the regulations of the European Higher Education Area. All study programs are structured according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which facilitates credit transfer between academic institutions. The three-year under-graduate program involves six semesters of study with a total of 180 ECTS credit points (CP). The undergraduate curricular structure follows an innovative and student-centered modularization scheme - the 3C-Model - that groups the disciplinary content of the three study years according to overarching themes:
