  • Chemistry, MSc

    Faculty: Science and Technology

    Starting date: September/February

    Language requirements: English language proficiency (TOEFL 547 /IELTS 6.0 /oral examination)

    Academic requirements: Relevant Bachelor degree

    Duration: 4 semesters

    Number of contact hours: 1,200

    ECTS credits: 120

    Short description:
    Graduates of the MSc programme have significant knowledge in all major fields of chemistry including inorganic, organic, physical, biological, analytical, structural, theoretical and technical chemistry. They acquire advanced application skills in chemistry during laboratory courses with special emphasis on synthetic and structural chemistry and the application of the most common analytical techniques. Possessing broad knowledge in the use of chemical literature, they work successfully in both the chemical industry and chemical laboratories including research and development areas.

    MSc graduates have the appropriate skills to continue their studies in doctoral schools of chemistry at the University of Debrecen or at any university throughout the world.

    Course structure:

    Basic natural sciences (6 credits)
    including mathematics, physics, biology, geology, informatics

    (further 25 credits are required from previous BSc studies)

    Obligatory chemistry courses (43 credits)
    inorganic chemistry (6 credits)
    physical chemistry (including radiochemistry, quantum theory and colloids) (11 credits)
    analytical chemistry (including spectroscopies) (10 credits)
    organic and biochemistry (10 credits)
    industrial chemistry (6 credits)

    Optional chemistry courses (35 credits)
