Special features regarding teachingBuilding on an undergraduate, broad-based Bachelor's degree course in Chemistry, five Master's degree courses are offered, three of which have an English-language curriculum. The names of the two international degree courses (Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry and Structural Chemistry and Spectroscopy) already indicate that the curricula in Leipzig place great emphasis on the application of spectroscopic methods and structural elucidation. Teaching is strongly oriented towards the current research fields of the chemistry faculty.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe range of subjects offered by the faculty for international students is very broad (3 Master's degree courses). The degree course Structural Chemistry and Spectroscopy is based on the German master degree course in chemistry. In the joint master's degree course Chemistry and Biotechnology (cooperation with Ohio University, Athens, USA) and Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry (partnerships with Lille, Krakow, Helsinki and Bologna) a stay abroad is obligatory. Numerous cooperations and the easy recognition of achievements made abroad facilitate a stay.
Special features regarding the equipmentThe faculty has access to excellent technical equipment with various research devices. Some of these can also be used for teaching purposes. Equipment includes NMR, MS -(GC-MS, LC-MS, MALDI), laser and fluorescence spectroscopy, atomic force and scanning tunnelling microscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and a 3D laser patterning system. A large number of subject-specific databases (147) can be accessed via the database information system (DBIS) of Leipzig University Library.
Support for foundersFaculty support students in all areas of transfer. Potential start-ups receive comprehensive support at the University of Leipzig, from the initial consultation to the founding of the company, and continue to be supported afterwards by the regional start-up network SMILE, the Leipzig Self-Management Initiative (cooperation between the University and other partners in Leipzig).
Other special featuresThe teaching and research profile of the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy is particularly characterised by the cooperative embedding in the broad range of topics of the University of Leipzig, the neighbouring faculties (Physics and Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, Medicine) as well as the non-university research institutions (Leibniz Institutes for Surface Modification (IOM) and for Tropospheric Research (IfT), the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) and the German Biomass Research Centre).
