  • Special features regarding teaching
    A particular strength of the Department of Chemistry is that it has supplemented the three core subjects of Chemistry – Inorganic, Physical and Organic Chemistry – with Technical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Macromolecular Chemistry in conjunction with the Department of Plastics at Fraunhofer LBF, and Theoretical Chemistry. This broad combination of subjects is almost unique among German universities and offers a variety of interdisciplinary teaching & research for scientific disciplines (Biology, Materials Science, Physics) as well as Engineering Sciences. www.chemie.tu-darmstadt.de/studieren
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The Department maintains a large number of collaborations with national and international partners at renowned universities and research institutions and is involved in numerous exchange programmes. This gives all students the opportunity to spend time abroad during their studies. Careful coordination, selection and support by the Foreign Student Adviser and a professorial mentor ensure that credits earned abroad are recognised. We also offer foreign students an attractive range of courses and a wide range of support.
  • Support for founders
    TU Darmstadt offers many support services for young founders and start-up companies through the Startup and Innovation Center HIGHEST, including help with developing their business model and finding investors and suitable funding programmes. In the Chemistry department, Prof. Biesalski is available as a “start-up promotor” to help students and academic staff with questions relating to setting up a business and works in close contact with HIGHEST.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    The department actively helps students who are at a disadvantage due to a disability or chronic illness in all matters, in particular in dealing with their studies. This may be technical, personal or structural support or help with extending deadlines for assignments and/or examinations. In addition to the course coordination offered by the department, TU Darmstadt also provides a wide range of guidance for orientation and support in all matters (http://www.tu-darmstadt.de/studieren/studienorganisation/handicap.de.jsp).
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    As part of an equal rights concept, the Department of Chemistry is committed to further promoting the issues of gender equality and equal opportunities in general, ensuring that family life and careers can be reconciled and eliminating career obstacles. Numerous measures to support specific status groups (pupils, students, doctoral candidates, post-doctoral candidates, technical administrative employees and professors) have been launched and implemented in recent years with a view to ensuring equal opportunities and the ability to reconcile careers and family life.
