Molecules of Life, Molecules of Dream
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.
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 a biological mechanism as well as 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 trains scientists and engineers of the highest level in the field of chemistry, chemical engineering and biotechnology and offers a Bachelor as well as two Masters.
Holders of a Masters degree or an equivalent title can also undertake doctoral studies at the Doctoral School (EDCH).
The Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering (ISIC) brings together different areas of research.
First pilot for the Google and Apple-based decentralised tracing app
