With the bachelor degree programme in Applied Chemistry, our university of applied sciences is increasingly focusing on natural sciences. This is a direct response to the high demand for specialists from the industry.
Future students can look forward to a practical education and excellent job prospects. Applications for the academic year 2019/20 are still possible until 31 August.
Federal government to finance study places
In future, the federal government is going to finance 20 places in the bachelor degree programme Applied Chemistry. In this year's Austria-wide call for tenders for new study places, the Ministry of Science was looking for degree programmes in the areas of digitisation and MINT.
The bachelor degree programme Applied Chemistry at IMC Krems has been running very successfully since the winter semester 2018, thanks to the support of the Province of Lower Austria.
With the interdisciplinary degree programme Applied Chemistry, IMC Krems was able to score points and bring additional federal-funded study places to Krems. This is an important basis for the long-term financing of the programme.
Students are working on the "big issues"
From recycling to pharmaceuticals: Students of Applied Chemistry deal with the great challenges of our time.
The interdisciplinary education provides students with a solid basis for entering various branches of industry or research. This is ensured by a balanced mix of computer-based methods, basic chemical subjects, and related disciplines such as mathematics, computer science, statistics, physics and chemical engineering. Another plus: English as the language of instruction.
Kremsgenial: No overcrowded laboratories and excellent job prospects
The degree programme has numerous other advantages: All students have a guaranteed laboratory place, there are no waiting lists for internships. Students who are accepted receive optimal conditions that allow them to complete their studies within the standard duration of their studies. Students are looked after in small groups and in a familiar atmosphere. There are no mass lectures or overcrowded lecture halls.
"One of the main goals is to strengthen the development in the field of universities of applied sciences. The extension of the study offer is the answer to the needs of the future generations", stresses CEO Ulrike Prommer.
"With a mix of natural sciences, life sciences, digitisation and practical skills, the bachelor degree programme in Applied Chemistry is the ideal preparation for our students to enter the national and international job market," says Ms Prommer, and continues: "The degree programme, which was developed in close cooperation with our business and industrial partners, offers state-of-the-art training of the highest quality and the best prospects for the future".
