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.
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 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.
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.
The Master "Biophysicochimie/ Biochemistry - Biophysics" will provide an interdisciplinary training in biochemistry, physical chemistry and advanced methods of physical-chemical synthesis and analysis. This binational master Master is designed for students looking for a training that provides all competences necessary for working in fundamental research and R&D in the field of the Biosciences. It is well implemented in the employment area of the Upper Rhin Valley (Basel-Strasbourg-Freiburg/ Karlsruhe) that accounts for one of the highest concentrations of biotech and pharmaceutical industries and public research laboratories in this field in Europe.
