The Master by Research programme in Chemistry targets those who are highly motivated to develop skills and knowledge for future career in academic, industrial or public research and development. This is also an excellent preparation for future doctoral studies.
The Master by Research programme in Chemistry is the right choice for students who wish to specialize in chemistry and aim for a career within research, development and innovation. During the programme, you work together with researchers on a research problem. You mix your research with the academic studies you need to solve the problem.
As a student, you are part of a research team at the department. Together with researchers, you take part in a research project and work both independently and together with others.
The education consists of both courses on an advanced level and project work, and ends with an individual Master’s thesis during the last semester. Projects may include areas like synthesis and analysis of natural products, molecular interactions in biopolymer systems, organic catalysis, or development of analytical methods.
