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.
This postgraduate degree course enables you to study aspects of medicinal chemistry that explore the links between disease, mechanisms of action and the development of safe, effective commercial drugs. You have the opportunity to pursue these topics across a number of different disease therapies using the innovative teaching methods pioneered by The Open University, while developing a wide range of skills associated with masters-level study
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.
This course provides recent graduates with training in current analytical techniques and scientific skills which are of value to a wide range of sectors including chemical, pharmaceutical, optoelectronics and environmental monitoring.
The MProf Food & Drink Innovation (Packaging & Sustainability) offers a unique postgraduate experience, specifically designed in discussion with industry bodies (Scotland Food & Drink, Skills Development Scotland, Interface Food & Drink). As postgraduate students, highly talented individuals will work in mixed-discipline teams to develop innovative food and drink packaging and sustainable solutions.
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.
The course in Chemical Biology will develop in students an understanding of the chemical background of biological problems and processes at the interface between Chemistry and Biology. Students will be able to study real life systems and research into areas at the forefront of chemical biology. Differing aspects such as natural product synthesis, biocatalysis and molecular modeling of such systems will all be explored in this exciting new course.
Catalysis lies at the heart of many chemical processes, from the academic research lab through living systems to the industrial large-scale reactor. By understanding and careful use of catalysis many processes can be made faster, cleaner and more sustainable. This course will provide training in the state-of-the-art of catalysis theory, application, preparation and analysis and is recommended for graduates in chemistry or chemical engineering wishing to pursue a career in academia or industry.
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.
To be a chemical engineer you need a keen, creative mind, and expertise that besides chemistry spans fields such as fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and applied mathematics.
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.
This MSc course offers an opportunity to examine some of contemporary science's most pressing issues and to develop a wide range of skills associated with masters-level study. You can choose any of the current modules within the postgraduate science programme, which means that you can tailor this MSc to suit your own interests. Our modules include areas such as Earth science, medicinal chemistry, medical physics and science and society.
This course provides recent graduates with training in current analytical techniques, scientific and transferable skills applicable for environmental chemistry research.
