Program description

As a chemist you juggle with matter, dissecting, analysing and building it.

As a chemist you juggle with matter, dissecting, analysing and building it. Our Chemistry Master's programme, which provides you with an exceptional tool box for your future career, is closely associated with the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM). At this research institute, chemists work together to explore the properties of molecules and materials.

This cooperation between the most chemical of chemists and the most physical of physicists in one research institute is unique in the world. It is the secret of IMM's success and its many scientifi c breakthroughs. Most of our graduates take up a PhD position, either in Nijmegen or elsewhere in the world. Our research institutes have many vacancies for PhD projects every year. Many of our graduates also become researchers and managers in industry, the commercial sector and research organizations.

Chemistry Curriculum

Bioinformatics; Physical Chemistry (NMR); Theory; Organic Chemistry; Organometal and Coord. Chemistry; Chemometrics; Crystal Growth; Biochemistry.

Academic training in the field of chemistry with a focus on: nanostructures/design, synthesis and growth; life sciences and bioinformatics, qualifying students for researcher, teacher or manager.

Instruction modes
Laboratory work, research project, lectures, case work, group work.

Specialization Nanoscience & Technology
Nanoscience & Technology focuses on the physics and the chemistry of molecules and functional materials such as organic macromolecular systems, polymers, semiconductors, oxides and metals.

The programme is a joint activity between Radboud University Nijmegen and the Eindhoven University of Technology. It covers the complete chain of knowledge from fundamental concepts (theory and experiment), via nano-manipulation and self-assembly, fabrication and characterization to complete device structures.

At Radboud University, the programme is embedded in the tracks 'Molecules and Functional Materials' of the Master of Science in Physics and Astronomy and the Master of Science in Chemistry. Students will subscribe to one of these tracks. Several integrative elements such as common lectures and summer schools for all students following the program will provided. These elements cover subjects at the boundary between chemistry and physics and will prepare prospective students to work in the interdisciplinary fields of nanoscience & technology. All courses followed by students at the two partner institutions will be mutually approved.
