About

Since the dawn of mankind, materials have played an essential role in human development. The Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age are part of our history and today we are heading towards the Nano Age. Materials Chemistry programme is offered at the Chalmers University of Technology. 

Overview

Centred around organic- and inorganic chemistry, polymers and nanotechnology we train you in how to use these tools in tweaking molecules to give materials specific properties. This could range from high temperature corrosion resistant materials and materials for catalysts in a chemical process or in cars to nanomaterials that have unique traits and precision targeted pharmaceuticals. 

Evolving fields where materials chemistry stands for great opportunities are e.g. biodegradable detergents, solvent free paints, polymers made of renewable recourses, polymer based solar panels and diodes, thermoelectric materials that transfers heat to electricity and handling complex emissions from fuel efficient engines that rely on biofuels instead of fossil fuels.

The Materials Chemistry programme at the Chalmers University of Technology  provides you with an engineering education within the materials field where emphasis is on synthesis, chemical characterisation, physical and chemical properties and applications, and top-down chemical nanomanufacturing. There is also a closeconnection to industrially relevant materials, including both present products and the materials of the future.

Career 

Scientists, in industry or academia, and engineers in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental materials development to application of materials technology in products and processes. Sweden has cutting edge research in characterisation, design and development of new materials.

There is thus a continuous need for materials engineers with a sound chemistry background within Swedish industry, such as automotive, rolling bearings, bioimplants, polymers, surface treatment, paint, packaging materials, hygiene and healthcare products and pharmaceuticals. In addition, sustainable engineering opens up more opportunities such as catalysis, recycling, biodegradable materials, tailored nanomaterials and corrosion resistant alloys.

Besides moving on as PhD-students, previous student have found positions at e.g. Komet, ST1, Emerson, Borealis, SP, Domsjö fabriker, Eka Chemicals, Mölnlycke Healthcare, Elasto Sweden AB, YKI, Tetra Pack, Intellego Technologies, Akzo Nobel, Oxeon, Vinci Technologies, Kronans droghandel, Iggesund paperboard, Volvo Cars, Alström Power, Forbo Forshaga.
