Changes due to the new examination regulations

 

As of the summer semester 2022, the new examination regulations for the Master’s program in Chemistry will be in place. Students who are enrolled in the old examination regulations 2009 can complete their studies in the old examination regulations until September 30th, 2024.

Due to structural changes in the course of study of the new examination regulations 2022 there are also structural changes in the course of study of the old examination regulations 2009. This has an impact on RWTHonline, especially on the registration of exams. If you are enrolled in the old examination regulations 2009, you will find the changes that apply to you on this page.

 

RWTHonline: Registration for English-language mandatory examinations

In order for the grades to be entered correctly, you must also register in RWTHonline for the mandatory courses held in English for the exams with German titles!

 

Changes in language

The language requirements of the new examination regulations 2022 have been changed to “German and English ”. Therefore, mandatory modules can also be offered in English. The following mandatory modules are only available in English:

  • Applied Molecular Catalysis (Angewandte molekulare Katalyse)
  • Colloid Chemistry (Kolloidchemie)
  • Computer Simulation and Spectroscopy of Solids (Computersimulation und Spektroskopie an Festkörpern)
  • Heterogeneous Catalysis and Environmental Catalysis (Heterogene Katalyse und Katalyse in der Umwelttechnik)
  • Reaction Engineering (Reaktionstechnik)
  • Soft Matter Nanoscience (Soft Matter Nanoscience)
  • Structures and Properties of Macromolecules and Polymeric Materials (Strukturen und Eigenschaften von Makromolekülen und Polymermaterialien)

Students of the old examination regulations 2009 can take the examinations of these modules in German on request.

In addition to the mandatory modules mentioned above, some of the mandatory elective modules are only offered in English:

  • Biomaterials (Biomaterialien und bioaktive Peptide)
  • Biophysical Chemistry (Biophysikalische Chemie)
  • Characterization Methods in Heterogeneous Catalysis (Charakterisierungsmethoden in der heterogenen Katalyse)
  • Catalysis for Modern Organic Synthesis (Katalyse für moderne Organische Chemie)
  • Colloidal Hydrogels: Synthesis and Applications in Functional Materials (Kolloidale Hydrogele: Synthesen und Anwendungen in funktionalen Materialien)
  • In Situ Spectroscopy for Process Control (In situ-Spektroskopie zur Prozessführung)
  • Instrumental Analysis of Polymers (Instrumentelle Polymeranalytik)
  • Industrial Organic Chemistry (Industrielle Organische Chemie)
  • Mechanistic Studies in Molecular Catalysis (Mechanismen der molekularen Katalyse)
  • Multiphase Catalysis: Principle and Industrial Application (Katalysatorimmobilisierung und Mehrphasenkatalyse)
  • Nanostructured Catalysts: Synthesis, Characterization and Application (Nanostrukturierte Katalysatoren: Herstellung, Charakterisierung, Anwendung)
  • Polymer and Colloidal Dispersion Rheology (Rheologie von Polymeren und kolloidalen Dispersionen)
  • Physical Organic Chemistry: Mechanistic Investigation Methods (Physikalisch-Organische Chemie: Methoden für kinetische und mechanistische Untersuchungen)
  • Scientific Computing for Chemical Reaction Engineering (Wissenschaftliches Rechnen in der Reaktionstechnik)
  • Supramolecular Chemistry (Supramolekulare Chemie)
  • Sustainable Industrial Chemistry (Nachhaltige industrielle Chemie)

Students of the old examination regulations 2009 can only take the exams of these modules in German if they have already taken the exams in a previous semester and have failed.

 

RWTHonline: Registration for combined examinations

Students of the old examination regulations 2009 still have to register in RWTHonline for the combined mandatory exams! From the grades of the separate examination dates, the total grades are calculated after the exams and entered for the combined mandatory exams. The separate dates for the combined mandatory exams cannot be entered in RWTHonline. Therefore, you will find the dates in the separate exam dates of the new examination regulations 2022.

 

RWTHonline: Registration for Kolloidchemie / Colloid Chemistry

Since sommer semester 2021 the course "Kolloidchemie/Colloid Chemistry" no longer ends with a written exam.  Students of the old examination regulations 2009 still have to register in RWTHonline for the combined mandatory exam "MES 2"! From the grades of the exam in "Kolloidchemie/Colloid Chemistry" and the written exam in "Chemische Nanostrukturen", the total grades are calculated after the exam and entered for the combined mandatory exam "MES 2".

 

Changes in combined mandatory examinations

In the new examination regulations 2022, the combined mandatory modules were separated. Therefore, students of the old examination regulations 2009 will no longer take part in joint examinations for the following combined mandatory modules:

  • SYN 1 (Prüfung zur Vorlesung Molekulare Symmetrie und asymmetrische Synthese und zur Vorlesung Angewandte Computerchemie)
  • SYN 2 (Prüfung zur Vorlesung Heterozyklen in der medizinischen Chemie und zur Vorlesung Bioanorganische Chemie)
  • CAT 2 (Prüfung zur Vorlesung Bio- und Organokatalyse und zur Vorlesung Organometallchemie und homogene Katalyse)
  • MES 2 (Prüfung zur Vorlesung Chemische Nanostrukturen und zur Vorlesung Kolloidchemie)
  • COS 1 (Prüfung zu der Vorlesung Theoretische Chemie und zu der Vorlesung Molekülspektroskopie)
  • COS 2 (Prüfung zur Vorlesung Quantenchemie der festen Materie – Bänder, Bindungen, Werkstoffe nach Maß und zur Vorlesung Theorie der magnetischen Resonanz)
