IMC Krems’ Applied Chemistry bachelor degree programme is taught in English and is aligned with the requirements of today’s chemicals industry.
For instance, the curriculum places a strong emphasis on chemometrics – the application of statistical methods in the planning, development and selection of chemical processes and experiments – and the related IT-supported analysis of large volumes of data (big data analysis).
Both of these are becoming key aspects of quality assurance and online process optimisation.
The modelling of molecules and simulation of experiments using computer-aided techniques is also crucial for efficient drug design in the pharmaceuticals industry.
In addition, the innovative programme skilfully combines this with comprehensive training in chemistry as well as groundbreaking topics such as the use of renewable raw materials, and waste recycling and reuse.
By linking chemistry subjects with the study of computer-based methods, students acquire the competences for which industry demand will become stronger and stronger.
A particularly attractive option is that students with an excellent academic record (performance in examinations and other assessments) have the opportunity to receive a merit-based scholarship from Fachverband der chemischen Industrie. You’ll receive all the information you need about this on the programme.
