The purpose of the programme is to give you a broad and fundamental knowledge in the fields of physical, theoretical chemistry and chemical physics. Students develop advanced laboratory skills, profound theoretical comprehension of fundamental mechanisms and good understanding of practical applications. Special emphasis is given to an unbroken line of understanding, from quantum mechanical description of atoms and molecules to complex supramolecular structures, as well as their industrial and biological applications.
During the first year courses within the fields mentioned above provide you with a suitable base for future studies in these or related subjects. In the second year you can, to a large extent, influence and plan your studies, with several different possibilities. It is mandatory to complete a Master’s degree project, corresponding to at least 30 ECTS credits.
Graduates from the programme are highly skilled in conducting research and development and also suitably prepared for PhD studies.
