Polymer & Colloid Chemistry, Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)
How do you make the plastic of an artificial hip joint capable of withstanding the stresses of everyday life? What composite materials are used to advance aerospace? Can the performance of environmentally friendly paints be improved? How must plastics be structured to avoid ending up as microplastics? Polymer and colloid chemistry continues to successfully meet new, exciting challenges, and is of great importance to industry and the economy. That is why the University of Bayreuth has set up a degree programme that is unique in Germany: Polymer & Colloid Chemistry. The degree programme trains students for careers in areas of highly innovative research and development. After a standard period of study of six semesters, students in Bayreuth graduate with the internationally recognised Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) degree.
Overall, I can really recommend the degree programme. You learn a lot, and in the end, you have a good basis in chemistry for further studies (even for fields outside of polymer chemistry).
This degree programme is taught in German.
Good knowledge of German is an essential prerequisite to successfully completing the degree programme. Proof of German language proficiency at B2 level or equivalent is required for admission. For detailed information, please see the German version of the study programme site.
