How can I make a flexible and cheap solar cell out of organic molecules? Can I build a car engine on a molecular level? You will encounter such questions in the Master’s degree programme in Chemistry at the University of Groningen.
The programme is embedded in an internationally respected research environment; it is related to the Zernike Institute of Advanced Materials and to the Stratingh Institute. Both are officially recognized as national centres of leading research in materials science.
With a cross-disciplinary approach, this programme will study different fields of chemistry.
Molecular Science: this area develops the understanding of molecular aspects and applies it to the fields of nanotechnology, supramolecular chemistry, synthetic chemistry, catalysis and the chemistry of life sciences.
Chemical Physics: this field studies the physical and chemical properties of atoms, molecules and condensed matter through experimental techniques and theoretical methods. You can choose between theoretical chemistry and solid state chemistry.
Polymer Science: this domain helps you to gain a deeper understanding of the physical and chemical structure and properties of polymer. It focuses on the development of thin films, surfaces and biomaterials.
