If you are interested in the experimental sciences, and specifically chemistry and its many applications, this programme is the right choice for you because it teaches you the basics of the field, how to articulate the production of new materials and how to facilitate sustainability.
The programme provides you with core competencies in mathematics and physics and a strong theoretical and experimental foundation in chemistry. Workshops bring concepts to life and teach you how to carry out laboratory research. You can also personalise your study plan according to your own interests.
Upon graduation, you will have essential know-how regarding the production, transformation, analysis and marketing of traditional and innovative materials with an emphasis on sustainability, environmental protection and safety. You will be equipped to work in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, biotechnology, energy and new materials industries, or to pursue further education with a master’s degree.
