Find out more information about Chemistry

Chemistry is the science that covers composition, properties, structure and reactions of molecules, atoms and systems that include the two. Chemistry originated from the medieval art of alchemy, which sought to create gold through various transformations of materials. However, these experiments resulted in other scientific discoveries that created the basis for modern chemistry.

Chemistry is strongly connected to physics, but it differs because chemical analysis is made at an atomic level and substances change their structure, shape or state. All this study is done with the purpose of understanding the origin of the substance. Chemistry is divided into materials science, quantum, organic, and inorganic chemistry. Students who earn a Master degree in Chemistry (Master of Science) can specialize in kinetics, combinatorial chemistry, cluster chemistry, photochemistry, theoretical chemistry and more.

Pursuing a Master’s degree in Chemistry leads to careers in research and science in disciplines such as chemical engineering, pharmaceutics, or the public sector. Some of the highest paid career prospects are as analytical chemists, engineers, healthcare scientists, toxicologists or research scientists.

Suggested Masters in Chemistry

Master Chemistry of Heterocyclic Compounds

Heterocyclic compounds are presumably the largest class of organic compounds, obtaining great diversity in chemical and physical properties. Thus, heterocycles found wide applicability in pharmacy, agrochemicals, electronics, etc. The Chemistry of Heterocyclic Compounds programme is delivered by RUDN University.

M.Sc. Chemistry

In the Master’s in Chemistry you will gain skills and knowledge to understand, design and control the functioning of molecules and materials. You will gain a broad and deep perspective in chemistry with five specialisations taught in a state of the art research environment. Extensive research experience in a multidisciplinary environment are the perfect environment to excel in chemistry.

M.Sc. Molecular Biosensing and Biorobotics

The Molecular Biosensing and Biorobotics programme offered by ITMO University uniquely combines state-of-the-art computational and practical aspects of material sciences, nanotechnology, molecular biology and biochemistry. It effectively bridges material sciences and information technologies, both being key research areas of ITMO University.
