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.
Computational chemistry is the development and practical application – through high-performance computing – of quantum and classical mechanics (and informatics) to the study of chemical processes ranging from fundamental spectroscopic events in the gas phase to the nature of protein-drug interactions.
The Biochemistry MSc programme aims to attract UK, EU and overseas students to Edinburgh to an academically-challenging and career-developing MSc programme studying biological systems at the molecular and cellular level.
Forensic Studies In Forensic Science - The course is part of a collaborative education partnership with the University of Florida and the University of Edinburgh
The program is based on the accredited curriculum used at our university for Chemistry MSc studies. It was approved by the European Chemistry Thematic Network Association and the Hungarian Accrediting Committee.
We invite applications from well-qualified candidates whose research interests correspond to our areas of research expertise focused on Chemistry.
This pluridisciplinary training consists of courses in organic chemistry, biological chemistry, medical chemistry, bio-organic and bio-inorganic chemistry, molecular, cellular and structural biology, spectroscopy, genomics, immunology and, finally an interdisciplinary research project. English courses take place during the first year. During the 3rd semestre, students work in an interdisciplinary research project which is presented and evaluated in English.
A Master’s degree in chemical engineering is a key to professional success in several modern and innovative industrial sectors. Smart materials, sustainable processes for energy production, industrial biotechnologies, and advanced pharmaceutical applications are only some of the examples of sectors where the expertise of chemical engineers is sought and highly rewarded.
The Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Chemical Innovation and Regulation (EMMC ChIR) is a Joint Master course developed by the Consortium of Universities. These are the University of Algarve, the University of Barcelona, the University of Bologna and Heriot Watt University.
Cette filière est tout particulièrement destinée aux étudiants souhaitant se préparer au concours de l' Agrégation de physique chimie, option chimie, qui constitue le débouché majeur de ce master. Le master "Préparation à l Agrégation" (PA) s’inscrit dans la continuité de la Licence pluridisciplinaire Maths-Physique-Chimie, et est ouverte aux titulaires d’une Licence de Chimie. Le cursus comprend des cours et des travaux pratiques de chimie au niveau Master, ainsi que des cours et des travaux pratiques de physique (niveau L).
This training has for principal objectif to form specialists for chemical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as for academic research. Graduates will dispose of solid knowledge in chemistry, physical-chemistry, basic informatics and specific chemoinformatic methods, such as molecular modelling, quantum chemistry and quantum dynamics.
The research Master Molecular and supramolecular chemistry (CMS) is the center piece in the training offer in chemistry at the University of Strasbourg. This training is based on an extremely high research potential that is nationally and internationally recognized. The master proposes a training in molecular and supramolecular chemistry which includes both theoretical and experimental aspects, highly attractive and competitive among national and international training offers in this field. This Master constitutes the ideal basis for a doctorate followed by an academic carreer.
