Welcome to our web pages

Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Rosenstiel, Dean

The wide spectrum of courses offered by our Faculty of Science is interesting and more fascinating than ever, allowing different choices and combinations and providing solid professional qualifications. Important technological progress has made this variety possible, since many new areas have been included, from nanotechnologies to global climate change. The boundaries of the traditional study areas and courses are no longer as rigorous as in the past. Interdisciplinary research is of key importance, dealing with the current challenges, which are significantly relevant for the entire society and for each individual in part. The current major research topics of our faculty with high applicability are health, aging society, environment, climate and energy, just to name a few.


The Faculty of Science has a lot to offer to students and researchers alike. Besides traditional degree programs, we offer an interesting mix of interdisciplinary courses that have attracted many students for quite some time now and innovative programs addressing new technological and societal challenges. The Faculty of Science not only offers the traditional degree programs like biology, chemistry, geosciences, computer science, mathematics, pharmaceutics, physics and psychology, but also a variety of interdisciplinary degree programs, like biochemistry, bioinformatics or geoecology. Special degree programs with a specific, applied focus have also been included, like nanosciences, medical technology, applied environmental geoscience, human geography, archaeology, cognitive science, pharmaceutical sciences and technologies or media informatics, medicine informatics and bioinformatics. Recently the Faculty of Sciences also offers Bachelor of Education programs in various teaching subjects such as biology, chemistry or physics.


As a research university, the teaching activity at the University of Tübingen is closely connected to and benefits directly from the numerous international research projects. Currently approximately 1.400 researchers and 180 professors work in different research networks. We offer our more than 9.500 students outstanding opportunities for their education in many different areas. Therefore we can provide the optimal prerequisites for our graduates that leave our faculty with a bachelor, master or PhD diploma in order to find most suitable job opportunities in the industry, research and education.


Our focus lies not only on the constant improvement of interdisciplinary research and teaching. We have also undertaken a restructuration of our academic administration and management structures in order to assure quality and professionalism and a better focus on specific activity areas. Such areas imply different tasks which are now covered by individual experts; these structures allow us to take over new responsibilities without automatically increasing public spending in times of financial restrictions. This way we intend to actively support the development of teaching and research at our faculty and also to support the University of Tübingen to become even more competitive, both on national and international level. In this context, you can find on our web pages our management team and corresponding areas of responsibility.


Sincerely yours,

Wolfgang Rosenstiel
