Are you interested in:
- Understanding the physical universe, we live in?
- The study of how atoms, ions and molecules shape the world we live in?
- The science that joins together physics, biology, medicine, pharmacology, energy and environmental sciences?
- Providing solutions to life-threatening problems in health, materials, and energy usage?
The Department of Chemical Sciences invites you to join our advanced degrees program, learn, investigate, and fulfil your academic potential. Our program of study will broaden your understanding of modern Inorganic, physical, theoretical, organic, bioorganic, and medicinal chemistry through learning and rewarding experiences in our department.
The program in Chemical Sciences allows specialization in diverse fields of research. During their studies, candidates are exposed to diverse working methods and advanced technologies.
The program accepts post-bachelor applicants with degrees in related disciplines where the focus has been on chemistry or a relevant field. Students with prior graduate work may be able to transfer course credits.
The program track in Chemistry allows for specialization in diverse fields of study:
- Physical Chemistry
- Computational and Theoretical
- and much, much more…
- Dedicated Academic staff
- State-of-the-art laboratories
- Publications in leading journals
- Participation in internationals conferences
Master’s studies include two years of research work under the supervision of a faculty member from the department and concluded by a written thesis. Theoretical studies include mandatory and elective courses (26 credits). The general curriculum for a Master’s degree in Chemical Sciences includes the following courses:
- Research work, thesis
- Mandatory courses
