Welcome to the Faculty of Chemistry


The Faculty of Chemistry is located to the west of Krefeld, with its facilities accommodated in the redeveloped and modernised buildings of the former School of Textile Engineering (Frankenring 20) and the former School of Dyeing and Finishing (Adlerstraße 32).


Some 910 students study and work here in small groups, supervised by 23 professors and 31 staff.


The Faculty of Chemistry trains students for career fields requiring an extensive and technological focus.


The studies with their practical orientation give graduates the qualifications they need to be able to enter their professional career immediately. This practical focus is documented even more extensively through the strong range of study opportunities offered in the form of cooperative (dual) engineering education and training as well as the current research and development work done at the faculty.


The faculty offers one of the most extensive ranges of specialisation for universities of applied sciences in Germany, both in the Bachelor's programmes as well as in the Master's programmes.
