Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Section

Life molecules, dream molecules

Science of the creation and pillar of all industries, chemistry is currently the central discipline of modern research, at the crossroads of all natural sciences.

Understanding a biological mechanism, dreaming of and producing a new drug, creating a revolutionary material or a clean and safe manufacturing process, designing new energy sources for humanity’s future, understanding the subtle balances governing our environment to protect it: these are all missions that today’s chemists and chemical engineers have to perform.

The chemistry and chemical engineering section is currently the largest chemistry school in Switzerland in terms of its annual number of graduates. It trains scientists and engineers of the highest level in the field of chemistry, chemical engineering and biotechnology and offers a Bachelor of Science at 180 credits and two Masters, the Master in Molecular and Biological Chemistry and the Master in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology.

Holders of a master’s degree or an equivalent title can then also join our Doctoral School (EDCH) to undertake doctoral studies and obtain the degree of Doctor of Science or Doctor of Technical Sciences.

The Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering (ISIC) brings together different areas of research.
