Research in the Department of Chemistry encompasses a large spectrum of chemical disciplines, from the traditional areas of Organic, Inorganic, Bio and Physical Chemistry to the cutting-edge fields of Nanoscience, Material, Systems and Computational/Theoretical Chemistry. This multidisciplinary approach lets us tackle a wide range of central projects and 21st century challenges. This includes pharmaceutical applications, clean energy and green chemistry technologies, virtual design and understanding of chemical structures, catalytic systems, or biophysics of macro and micro systems.
The M.Sc. program offers a Thesis (research) track and requires two years of full-time study. Outstanding students may join the combined M.Sc.-Ph.D. track during the 2nd year of their M.Sc. studies.
