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.
Designed in close collaboration with industry, this programme takes a theoretical and a practical approach to ensure it meets the requirements of potential employers.
The Master’s programme in Chemistry aims to let students understand, design and control the functioning of molecules and materials. The Master's programme in Chemistry offers you three specialisations: Chemistry for Life, Molecular Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. The programmes are closely associated with the research Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM). The goal is to explore new roads proceeding from synthesis and growth to design and architecture of molecular constructs and materials with specific, desired properties.
This new course in Physical Organic Chemistry explores the physical aspects of organic chemistry. Physical organic chemistry finds application in many differing situations such as organic synthesis, chemical biology, green chemistry , catalysis, materials science and alternative energy research. The course will train the student in the scientific approach employed in physical organic chemistry.
As the processing of natural and synthetic polymers is a complex issue from a theoretical point of view, studying this course has quite an interdisciplinary character. Not only general knowledge, basic chemistry and basic physics, but also specific knowledge relating to the structure and properties of macromolecular compounds are required. Attention is also paid to machinery, equipment and tools used in polymer processing. Within the educational process, computers are widely used.
The Penn Master of Chemical Sciences connects you with the resources of an Ivy League institution and provides you with theoretical and technical expertise in biological, inorganic, organic, physical and materials chemistry. In our various seminar series, you will also regularly hear from chemistry professionals who work in a variety of research and applied settings, allowing you to consider new paths and how best to take advantage of the program itself to prepare for your ideal career.
This degree provides an excellent basis for those wishing to pursue PhD studies, or for those aiming for work in the biotechnology, chemical, food or pharmaceutical industries.
Chemical engineering encompasses the translation of molecular information into discovery of new products and processes. It involves molecular transformations—chemical, physical, and biological—with multi-scale description from the submolecular to the macroscopic, and the analysis and synthesis of such systems. The chemical engineer is well prepared for a rewarding career in a strikingly diverse array of industries and professional arenas.
If you have already devoted the time and effort required to obtain a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in chemical/biological engineering or other related field and would like to further your academic training, you may want to consider graduate studies at The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CHBE).
The Department of Chemical Engineering offers programs of graduate study leading to the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.), and Master of Engineering (M.Eng.). All three programs are based on the principles of chemical engineering, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and related science and engineering disciplines.
The UCLA Chemical Engineering Department was established in 1983 and received ABET/AICHE accreditation shortly thereafter.
This course is designed for both uk/eu and International students with a background in a relevant biological discipline, who wish to learn more about the theory and practice of crop biotechnology but who wish to learn and practice the business skills that will allow them to pursue careers in a crop biotechnology business environment.
This four-year programme offers an extra year on top of the Biochemical Engineering BEng in which to acquire hands-on practical research experience and advanced design skills. Several optional routes provide flexibility to meet students' individual requirements.
