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.
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.
The Master Degree prepares students with an advanced knowledge and skills in the most important areas of Chemistry (Physical, Inorganic, Organic and Biochemistry).
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 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 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.
This new degree course consists of a rounded and integrated curriculum specialising in coolclimate wine production, climate change effects on viticulture, terroir and sparkling wine. It also includes opportunities to visit other wine-producing areas in Europe. The Wine Department staff have considerable international expertise and research experience, and a brand new Wine Research Centre was completed in March 2014. This combination will enable students to access an outstanding Masters-level education.
What does it take for an invention to lead to an innovation? What defines the pathway from exploration to exploitation? That is the central theme in the Science, Business & Innovation Master.
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.
If you have already completed a degree and wish to enhance your professional skills in chemistry then the Graduate Certificate in Science will allow you to pick and choose those courses which suit you. You could combine chemistry courses, within other science disciplines.
