It is hard to imagine life today without coatings. Almost all important goods and consumer articles are equipped with a coating which offers protection on the one hand but is also intended to give the article a special appearance. A very obvious example is motor vehicles. In some cases it would not be possible to give life-long guarantees that bodywork will not rust through if the vehicle were not equipped with an ingenious system comprised of several layers of coating. There is also the fact that 40% of decisions to buy a new car are based on the visual impression created by the bodywork in the dealer’s showroom.
All these aspects are incorporated into the Chemical Engineering / Colour and Coatings degree programme, almost the only one of its kind in the world, which especially covers the chemistry, manufacture, application and testing of coatings and layers of coating. Particular importance is attached to reducing the environmental pollution arising during the production and the application of coatings.
Students who successfully complete this 7-semester Bachelor’s programme will be awarded a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Chemical Engineering/Colour and Coatings. As “coating engineers”, graduates of this programme are a hallmark in their respective industry. The comprehensive combination of chemistry, engineering and design is unique and provides graduates with interesting career paths.
Ranked among the best: In the German national CHE University ranking published in the ZEIT newspaper, the Chemical Engineering degree programme at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences is in the top flight in several categories and thus received the best evaluation of all universities of applied sciences in Germany.
