NAWI Graz studies in the field of chemistry

Chemistry is omnipresent: it deals with the properties, structure, composition and reactions of substances. It studies how atoms and molecules interact with each other and how these interactions affect matter. Chemistry is an important discipline that deepens our understanding of the world around us and has many applications in areas such as medicine, environmental protection, energy and materials science. In addition, chemistry is also responsible for all processes in the human body, such as metabolism.

Bachelor Chemistry

(Kopie 4)

  • Duration: 6 semesters / 180 ECTS credits
  • Degree: Bachelor of Science (BSc)

(Kopie 6)

(Kopie 7)

The Bachelor's degree programme in Chemistry teaches essential fundamentals. This naturally includes a sound basic education in the field of chemistry, which focuses on knowledge of substances and the reactivity of chemical compounds. In addition, general scientific principles from physics and mathematics are taught.

The programme combines practical skills as well as analytical and mathematical thinking. The joy of experimentation is important - but precise analysis and description of facts must also be mastered. Numerous aspects are interwoven into a whole. The Bachelor's degree programme serves as a preliminary stage for Master's studies in numerous disciplines, in which knowledge is further expanded and also deepened.

Master Chemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering (taught in English)

(Kopie 16)

  • Duration: 4 semesters / 120 ECTS credits
  • Degree: Graduate engineer (Dipl.-Ing.)


Chemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering is an interdisciplinary, English-language Master's degree programme with an engineering focus. It builds on a Bachelor's degree in (technical) chemistry or pharmacy. The programme is application-oriented and teaches the basics of how to implement chemical or pharmaceutical processes industrially and how to scale up laboratory results for pharmaceutical and chemical production.

Further content includes process simulations or pharmaceutical production demonstrated in practice. State-of-the-art laboratories with state-of-the-art measuring devices such as Optical Coherence Tomography/Near-infrared (OCT/NIR), which make it possible to monitor the quality of a product online, are also used.
