Students of the MSc Chemistry programme acquire an extended knowledge and understanding of the most important experimental and theoretical principles in chemistry. The basic theoretical education contains courses in mathematics, physics and informatics. Students prepare their own short-term research projects in the second semester. This is a requirement for laboratory training.

Presentation skills are also developed during this training. The programme ends with a final examination. A prerequisite for graduation is the successful defence of a Thesis work, which is the result of two semesters of research in one of the research groups at the Institute. One of the most distinguished professor of our university was the late Albert Szent-Györgyi, who was awarded the Nobel prize in 1937.

Specialisation options

Pharmaceutical chemist, material science chemist, analytical chemist. Our graduates pursue careers as professional chemists in chemical and related industries, or in public service.
