Master of Science in Chemistry

Master of Science in Chemistry

Chemistry is frequently referred as a “central science”  for its key role in advancing technological progress through the design and synthesis of novel functional materials for energy, environmental, and biomedical applications.

Our two year program will extend your depth and breadth of knowledge in all domains of modern chemical science, helping you to become an excellent industrial or academic chemist.

By enrolling in the program you will benefit from a fast-developing research infrastructure and well-balanced study programs delivered by our highly qualified international academic staff. You will also be able to advance such essential skills as project management, team-working, problem-solving, preparing and delivering oral and poster presentations, as well as critical assessment of relevant scientific literature.
