Chemistry is the science which deals with molecular and atomic systems especially with the composition, properties, structure, and reactions of a substance (chemical reactions). Chemistry is closely related to physics and it is a branch of physical sciences. The main task of chemistry is to understand the origin of the substance. The composition of the substance is analyzed at atomic level. Atomic-molecular theory is the base of chemistry sciences. Chemistry differs from physics through the fact that during physical phenomena the substance does not turn into another (material vary on physical properties only) while during chemical reactions the substances transform into another. There are many branches of chemistry such as agro-chemistry, kinetics, cluster chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, solid state chemistry, nanochemistry, photochemistry and theoretical chemistry. Graduates can work in various positions, as chemical technologists, researchers, chemistry analysts, pharmacists, environmentalists, food technologists, oil and petroleum engineers and others.
Graduate study with concentrations in chemistry, earth science (including a fully online option), physics, and physical sciences (including teaching and non-teaching options) is offered within the Master of Science degree.
Are you fascinated by organic chemistry and designing potential drug substances? Then the master’s programme in Medicinal Chemistry is the answer for you. As a medicinal chemist you can expect to find work in the area of the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and biotech industry that conducts research into new drugs – either as soon as you graduate or after completing a PhD course, for example, via the Drug Research Academy. The MSc in Medicinal Chemistry is a springboard to a research-based career.
It is a program that combines chemistry, physics and biology and focuses on molecules and their properties. Majors in: biological chemistry; physical chemistry; and biomedical research.
If you choose to study Chemistry in Aalborg, you will spend very little time attending traditional lectures and seminars. Indeed, AAU students learn Chemistry by solving real life problems within small teams of fellows. This will give you a unique training in problem solving and improve your collaborative skills.
The ASC network aims at preparing students to become experts and develop international skills towards doctoral studies, and/or professional industrial careers in chemical analysis and characterization of the structure of materials.
The ChemTech Graduate Program in Chemistry is a new international program at the Technion offering M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. This international study program is taught entirely in English at the Schulich Faculty of Chemistry.
Science is changing. We see it all around us – today’s breakthrough studies happen at and across the boundaries of tradition disciplines and involve multidisciplinary teams, techniques, and insights. Modern science is increasingly less about individual objects (molecules, computers or people), but instead focuses on the fact that the functioning of such objects must be understood within their context – a context that is shaped by the complex environment that interactions among large assemblies create.
The MSc degree programme was established to meet the clear needs of academia and industry in the post genomic era. This degree is specifically aimed at giving students in-depth understanding of the structure-function relationship of proteins and the techniques used to produce and characterize them.
Natural Sciences looks at the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics from all the angles in order to discover the secrets behind man, molecule and materials through the insights that arise at the interface of these disciplines.
The main focus of this programme is the comprehension of organic synthesis pertaining to biologically active compounds. The programme begins with courses in organic chemistry and organic synthesis, building from the basic concepts to the advanced level, followed by an introduction in medicinal chemistry. It also covers protein chemistry, which broadens the students knowledge in the field of bio-organic chemistry.
The aim is to develop the appropriate competence and knowledge needed in high-tech industries and medical technologies applying nuclear magnetism as well as in research in physics, chemistry, bio- and materials sciences. The programme is open for applications from students with a Bachelor's degree or an equivalent higher education degree. All teaching will be in English. Students will be awarded a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree.
This programme is intended for Bachelors or Masters in Life Sciences and for laboratory technicians with a similar educational background who would like to further their careers. The education gives them the chance to develop to professionals who can independently plan and manage projects of a few months duration.
