Our bachelor courses
Chemical engineering and engineering and Bioengineering are interdisciplinary engineering sciences located at the interface between mechanical engineering, mathematics and the natural sciences. Building on these fundamentals, students learn the most important basic process engineering operations that can be found in a wide variety of processes and practical applications. Options for specialisation and in-depth study are continuously adapted to current research. The concept of research-oriented teaching already integrates students into the ongoing research activities of the institutes during the bachelor's programme through projects that are carried out in small groups.
The Bachelor's degree programme in Chemical Engineering and Process Engineering (CIW), like the Bachelor's degree programme in Bioengineering (BIW), is a classic engineering degree programme that provides a solid foundation in the natural and engineering sciences and has a standard period of study of six semesters.
Chemical and process enigineering
The degree programme in chemical and process engineering combines engineering and natural sciences. While in the first semesters in-depth fundamentals in mathematics, chemistry, physics, materials science, technical mechanics, design theory and thermodynamics are acquired, the focus in the 5th and 6th semesters is on process engineering.
The bioengineering degree programme combines engineering and natural sciences. At the beginning, the foundations are laid in mathematics, chemistry and biology as well as technical mechanics, numerics and apparatus engineering. In-depth knowledge in thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, etc. enables the understanding of technological processes. Not only biotechnology, but all operations of process engineering are learned. In addition to the lectures, the contents are also taught in laboratory practicals.
Lehramtsstudiums NwT am KIT
The Science and Technology (NwT) teaching degree programme combines engineering and natural sciences with the career goal of teaching at general secondary schools. The interdisciplinary study programme teaches the basics of natural sciences (biology, chemistry, physics) and focuses on engineering sciences in the areas of machine design, technical mechanics, electrical engineering and information technology, process engineering, technology assessment, building design and building physics. Later, two technical elective areas are studied in greater depth. Subject didactics, school practice-oriented project work, educational sciences and school practice phases are also part of the programme.
