Student-centered education in an interdisciplinary learning environment
This programme is developed by three collaborating Departments, the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), the Department of Organic Chemistry and the Department of Environmental Science (ACES), in order for you to get the best possible stepping stone to be part of the solution, and be able to reclaim your future.
This new programme in Sustainable Chemistry provides you with essential skills and knowledge to contribute to the development of a sustainable society.
These expert fields are reflected in our teaching and with small student groups, we have a dynamic and familiar learning environment that is valued by staff and students.
Studies in close connection to department research
All teaching staff at the MSc program are active researchers and as a student, you are offered multiple opportunities to get in contact with the most recent scientific advancements through lectures, laboratory sessions, and degree projects.
The first year of your MSc studies is aimed to improve your theoretical competence as well as experimental skills and lab techniques required to make you independent during the following year. In our Svante Arrhenius laboratories, you have access to top lab equipment and teaching assistants. The main part of your studies is placed on the campus with a focus on lectures and lab work in each course. During the second year, you are offered an elective course combined with a degree project where you get deeper research knowledge in a chosen field. The project will develop your skills in working with scientific methods, experimental planning, and performing independent research within one of our research groups. The degree project can extend from one to two semesters.
