Program Description

Master in Technical Chemistry

Graz University of Technology (TU Graz)

Overview The master´s degree program Technical Chemistry combines the knowledge of molecular science applied chemistry, and technology. Particular topics are renewable resources, energy storage/transformation, food technology, and polymer science.

Career Opportunities

The Master in Technical Chemistry offers an ideal combination of research, development, and application. Technical chemists are able to contribute to the research areas of synthesis, analytics, characterization, and processing. However, opportunities for the graduates of the master´s degree programme Technical Chemistry comprise a wide range including challenging topics in industry, environmental protection, development of innovative materials, drug discovery, or governmental tasks. Technical chemists also contribute in the areas of waste management, containment of contaminants, urban water management, plastics and climate engineering to recycling. The continuing development of conductors and semiconductors pushes the limits of energy storage and transformation and leads to innovations in computing. Improving construction materials and providing challenging solutions in architecture and construction industry are just a few of the unlimited number of challenges, which can be met by technical chemists.

NAWI Graz – Expertise to the Power of Two

“Chemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering” is offered as a joint programme shared between Graz University of Technology and Karl-Franzens-University in the framework of NAWI Graz. For students, this means profiting from the top performances and expertise of two universities – an opportunity unique in Austria!

Fact-Box

■ Study duration: 4 Semesters

■ ECTS Credits: 120

■ Final degree “Diplom-Ingenieur (Dipl.-Ing.) which is equivalent to a Master of Science degree.

All Lectures are held in English

Working as a Technical Chemist

The idea of the chemist who works alone in the laboratory producing different reagents and mixtures has given way to the reality of research management also in the field of technical chemistry. More than ever before, scientifically trained skilled personnel have to work together on the testing and utilisation of developed materials. The occupational field has considerably expanded, not least due to this application aspect.

Chemists make important contributions to progress in the field of computing by continuing development of conductors and semiconductors. They work on improving construction materials and provide challenging solutions in architecture and the construction industry. Innovative solutions have also been made in projects dealing with exhaust-air treatment in road tunnels in Graz. Chemistry graduates can work as specially trained poison prevention officers in mineral metallurgy and other highly sensitive fields. The development of new drugs and disinfection methods counts among the classical fields of work of chemists as does environmental technology: from waste management, containment of contaminants, urban water management, plastics and climate engineering to recycling.
