Chemical compounds are all around us - that‘s why the field of chemistry is an essential discipline in many areas of both science and industry, and well-trained specialists are always in demand. Consequently, well-trained specialists are sought after. To educate them is the aim of the three-year Bachelor’s course in Applied Chemistry that is offered by Moulay Ismail University in Meknès, Morocco, in cooperation with Aachen University of Applied Sciences.
The practice-related programme in engineering is modelled on the course of the same name at Aachen and the curriculum is identical. In addition, Moroccan students are taught German. Teaching is conducted by Moroccan lecturers complemented by lecturers from Aachen who hold block seminars in German in the fourth semester. The last two semesters are spent in Germany. Students complete their studies with a dual Bachelor’s degree from both partner universities. The course has been accredited by AQAS.
Graduates are expected to become highly qualified specialists who are able to meet the demands of industry in both Morocco and Germany. The universities therefore work closely together with business. Various companies offer positions for students to do their bachelor‘s thesis and for student interns to gain work experience.
