Chemistry - master

The Department of Chemistry is a highly ranked research institute and cooperates closely with many excellent research groups both nationally and internationally. The department hosts a Centre of Excellence (CoE) in theoretical and computational chemistry and a national research centre in structural biology. Moreover, the department participates in a Centre for marine bioprospecting where our expertise in molecular analysis, biocatalyst research, synthetic chemistry, cellular chemistry and biotechnology are utilised. You can choose a specialization for your master's degree and work in one of these research groups. You may choose practical chemistry with extensive laboratory work or purely theoretical studies where mathematical models and computers are the main tools. Extensive knowledge of chemistry is becoming ever more important in disciplines such as medicine and health, biology, environmental studies, biotechnology, geology, material science, nanotechnology and pharmacy. Moreover, with the study of molecules and their properties, chemistry remains centrally important in any multidisciplinary scientific field of research.
