University rank #151 (ARWU) ,
The consecutive International Master Study introduces advanced methods in spectroscopy and the structure exploration of chemical and biochemical compounds (bio-polymers, esp.).

About

The insight in structural aspects, structural spectroscopic investigations, and synthesis of complex substances constitute the major focus of the programme.

The study is based on applied research, which means students should work and think independently in a research context. In order to ensure international scientific contacts and co-operations, the programme language is English.
