The focus is on the synthesis and structure elucidation of complex structures. The aim is to enable students to think and work independently as scientists and to successfully solve problems in various scientific and technical fields. Graduates are increasingly required to assume important interdisciplinary functions in all areas of industry, business, state and society.
Graduates of the Structural Chemistry and Spectroscopy master’s programme at the Leipzig University hold an internationally sought-after professional qualification in chemistry. The main objective of the programme is the ability to work efficiently and independently at the forefront of chemical research. The master’s programme attaches just as much importance to a further deepening of specialist knowledge as it does to introducing students to the practical side of innovative work in science, as well as to solving problems when faced with the most challenging questions in modern technology and business.
One highly valued professional quality of chemists is their ability to systematically analyse and further develop complex scientific and technical processes from a material perspective. Because of these basic skills, chemistry graduates are also sought after in professional fields that are otherwise reserved for others, and in more distant areas such as management consulting, insurance and politics.
