The Chemistry - Bio and Nano Materials specialisation from Uppsala University has strong links to world leading research in this field. It is a unique specialisation at Uppsala University and you will have leading experts in, e.g. tissue engineering and biomaterials as teachers, and have the opportunity to do your degree project in a dynamic and world-class research environment, either at the university or in a private company.
A degree from Uppsala University will give you advantages in your career, not least thanks to the close connection to excellent and world leading research, but you will also have the opportunity to develop a personal contact network.
You will have a personal mentor who will invite you to seminars, group-meetings and other events in order to prepare you for your future career and you will meet PhD-students and post-docs who have come to Uppsala to be part of an excellent research environment to do cutting-edge research.
From the outline you can see that there is a great flexibility for choosing courses according to your background and interests, and the complete programme is given in English. During the first semester you can choose to take courses related to biochemistry/chemical biology or more physical and colloid chemistry related courses, to complement your earlier studies.
Possible career paths can vary. You may work with research and development, production processes, analysis of materials, management of safety and legal issues, patenting of inventions, marketing and sales, or environmental and sustainability issues.
You will study chemistry courses, which provide you with the theoretical and experimental skills needed for the subsequent semesters, some of which are common to other specialisations in the Master Programme in Chemistry.
Second, third and fourth semester
During the second and third semesters, you will take different courses in, e.g., biomaterials, surface chemistry, soft materials, organic chemistry and also nanobiotechnology. All courses include a combination of theory and experimental training. The programme ends with a degree project
