Master of Science in Molecular & Biological Chemistry

The Master of Science in Molecular & Biological Chemistry prepares the students to a career in research, combining theoretical understanding of the molecular world and hands-on experience in laboratories. This master is a research oriented program with a strong focus in the practical work in research labs and projects achievement. The program allows the student to choose 6 credits modules depending on his interest. Each module is composed by 2 or 3 courses dealing with recent research incomes from our labs. Students enhance their skills by selecting a Professor in order to carry out a short project consisting in a first research experience.

After two semesters, the student join a research laboratory as first full-time lab experience being involved in the daily life of a lab team for a period of 4 months.

Currently, the program offers a large spectrum of specialization in modern chemistry with about 30 research groups.
