In the first two semesters, important mathematical, scientific as well as environmental and economic basics are taught. From the third semester on, knowledge from the main areas of chemistry, physics, biology and business administration / economics is intensified. In the fifth semester, a focus is set by means of elective modules. The tandem module combines two disciplines so that a solution to a concrete problem can be developed in a structured and interdisciplinary manner. The program concludes with a Bachelor's thesis.
