Lab work in the course of studies

Praktikumsanlage der BCI © BCI​/​TU Dortmund

What would an engineer be with only theoretical knowledge? Not an engineer!
In addition to investing a lot of time in learning theory, BCI students therefore also spend more than a third of their studies in practical training.
In the first year, they acquire basic scientific practice in the practical courses of general and inorganic chemistry, physics and materials science. Organic chemistry follows in the second year, while process technology and engineering sciences are covered in the BCI labs, which tie in with the content of the courses and make knowledge tangible in the truest sense of the word. You can find a list of all the practical courses here. Detailed information at the Digitaler Zentralbereich
