Area of study: 04.04.01 Chemistry
Level: Master degree
Our graduate students have an excellent post-graduate track record of pursuing a doctoral degree or joining the workforce. This two-year master’s degree program, for which assistantship is available, is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain critical advanced chemistry skills and hands-on research training. This program often serves as a stepping stone for students who wish to choose either industry or academia as their career choice.
Chemists now have a leading role in areas such as microelectronics, polymer science, catalysis and nanotechnology. They also make an important contribution to areas of more traditional chemistry such as the pharmaceutical sector where understanding the 'physical properties' of intermediates and products is now recognised as essential in optimising the synthesis and properties of pharmaceutically active ingredients in medicines.
Goal of the master's program:
The program involves training a specialist in research and teaching activities in the field of physical chemistry, methods of planning and organizing the work of scientific and pedagogical teams and applying knowledge in a wide area of competence.
Area of professional activity:
Graduates are successful in finding employment in academia, government, and industrial laboratories (chemical, food, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, construction, petrochemical, mining and gas production, and others), and in advancing in their careers in chemistry.
