The Faculty of Science combines cutting-edge research with excellent teaching. It comprises the Departments of Chemistry, Physics as well as Exercise & Health and offers more than 40 courses to about 3,400 students. Recently, MSc courses in "Applied Neurosciences in Sports & Exercise", "Materials Science" und "Optoelectronics and Photonics" were accredited. Approximately 40 professors, including three ERC-grant holders and one winner of the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize, belong to the faculty. The involvement in various research alliances such as the collaborative research centre SFB/TRR 142 “Tailored Nonlinear Photonics“, the NRW Fortschrittskolleg "Light – Efficient – Mobile", an annual externally-funded budget of more than 8 million euros and many publications in high impact research journals demonstrate the research strength of our faculty. More and detailed information can be found in the biennial report (reporting period 2015/2016, german only, pdf document 5.5 MB, ).
