The teaching and research in the degree programme promotes the environmental society of tomorrow. The programme is focused on the chemistry of sustainable processes and materials. The studies offer a wide range of education opportunities in science and technology and an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience with modern experimental techniques.

The graduate will be able to:

  • independently search, interpret and absorb chemistry-related scientific knowledge and take responsibility for his/her own professional development
  • independently apply adopted, chemistry-related advanced knowledge to solve a scientific problem or to produce new knowledge in chemistry or chemistry-related environment
  • critically handle chemistry-related data and draw conclusions based on it
  • scientific research using scientific methods
  • clearly present and give reasons for results to a specialist and non-specialist audience
  • to work as a chemist in industry or public sector or in chemistry-related tasks

The degree programme contains advanced studies in different fields of chemistry: analytical, applied, inorganic, physical and/or organic chemistry. The programme also contains compulsory laboratory work and optional studies offered by other degree programmes in the Faculty of Technology. For instance, a student can include studies in the field of engineering – process engineering is a typical choice among many others – to further build their interdisciplinary study path.
